100TH ANNIVERSARY OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA


It is almost certain that we would not be celebrating the beatifications of Jacinta and Francisco Marto were it not for the apparitions which they experienced. Yes, every Catholic has the possibility to attain to the measure of sanctity which this honor represents. However, in practical terms it was the tutelage of an angel and the Blessed Mother that led these two young children to holiness in just a few short years. That tutoring began in the spring of 1916 with three visitations of the Guardian Angel of Portugal, apparitions which served as preparation for the visits the following year of the Mother of God.

PARISH FAIR & FESTIVAL 2017

Our Annual Parish Fair has come and gone.  Wow, what a crazy weekend!  This year's fair was a bit different than in past years as OLDP incorporated the archdiocesan policy requiring the purchasing of tickets from a central ticket booth for most of the game booths and food booths, including the food in the Bahan Center.  This enabled those booths to only collect tickets instead of the handling of cash, which sped up the lines a bit.  Even though we ran into a few snags, we did quite well for being our first year doing this.

This year we also had a better security presence with more Jefferson Parish deputies on the grounds and around the area, providing a safer environment for all.  There were no reported incidences of any serious nature the entire weekend.  We thank the Jefferson Parish deputies for a job well done.

Thank you to all who helped put this event together, and a special thanks to all those volunteers who donated their time and talents to the success of this annual event.

A great thank you goes out to all those who attended the fair and not only enjoyed themselves, but helped out the school and the church through their purchase of tickets, and other donations.

A TEACHING ON RECONCILIATION & THE EUCHARIST

Fr. Deo Ekisa will be continuing his presentation on Reconciliation and the Eucharist on Tuesday, April 25th at 7:00 p.m. in the church. The first talk was truly enlightening and answered many questions regarding these two most important sacraments. Fr. Deo will continue where he left off in his March 14th presentation and bring even more enrichment to us. There will be time for questions and answers at the conclusion. Everyone is welcome to join us even if you missed the first talk.
