CHURCH & ADORATION CHAPEL CLOSING DURING RENOVATIONS

From Monday, June 26th, through Friday, June 30th, both the Church and the Adoration Chapel will be closed.

Daily Mass will be held in Providence Hall, Monday through Friday of that week at 9:00 a.m.  Please use the church parking lot and enter the Cuccia Center through the Front Door, the door that faces the grassy park and W. Metairie Ave.  Providence Hall can be entered from inside the Cuccia Center, so please do not enter through the door on N. Starrett.  Also, please do not park on N. Starrett Dr. by the church office.

The reason for the closure is there are renovations being made in the Sacristy, and there is carpet being installed under the pews where there was none before.

Thank you for your cooperation and your patience.

NEWLY CONFIRMED

Ms. Danielle Gresse from Our Lady of Divine Providence recently made her adult Confirmation at the St. Louis Cathedral in a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Aymond.  We welcome her into full communion with our Church.

THE CELEBRATION OF THE CHRISTIAN MYSTERY

(excerpts from the Catechism of the Catholic Church)

34 1436 Eucharist and Penance. Daily conversion and penance find their source and nourishment in the Eucharist, for in it is made present the sacrifice of Christ which has reconciled us with God. Through the Eucharist those who live from the life of Christ are fed and strengthened. “It is a remedy to free us from our daily faults and to preserve us from mortal sins.” 

35 1437 Reading Sacred Scripture, praying the Liturgy of the Hours and the Our Father—every sincere act of worship or devotion revives the spirit of conversion and repentance within us and contributes to the forgiveness of our sins.

WHAT IF YOU MET AN APOSTLE??

If you bumped into an Apostle, and you wanted to know about this Jesus, this Christ; what might it be like. Well you can imagine it if you like. Go to UNRAVELING THE FAITH. In this week’s posting, Earl Gervais, our DRE, takes us into the Didache. The writings that our Church Scholars, and Pope Francis, tell us is as close to the Apostles as we could get. Take some time, and walk with the Early Church Fathers, let your soul and your spirit take you to the beginning.

PRAYER FOR PROTECTION IN STORMY WEATHER

Our Father in Heaven,
through the intercession of Our Lady of Prompt Succor, spare us during this hurricane season from all harm.  Protect us and our homes from all disasters of nature. Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us. 

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
