WORLD MISSION SUNDAY



Next Sunday, WORLD MISSION SUNDAY, we are called to be part of the Church’s missionary efforts, supporting mission priests, religious Sisters and Brothers, and lay catechists who provide loving service to those most in need. As Catholics around the world — here at home and in the Missions — gather at the Eucharist around the table of the Lord, let us… PRAY for the Church’s worldwide missionary work OFFER financial HELP through The Society for the PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH for vulnerable communities throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Pacific Islands 

CLOTHE A CHILD CAMPAIGN IN OCTOBER

Clothe A Child

On the weekend of October 27th and 28th, the OLDP Parents Club will have a second collection at all Masses for the annual Council of Catholic Schools Cooperative Clubs "Clothe A Child" campaign that provides gifts of newly purchased clothing for underprivileged children in the New Orleans area for Christmas. We sincerely appreciate your generosity in brightening the day of these children during the Christmas season.

REDELEGATION OF EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION


OLDP FAMILY DAY, TAILGATE PARTY, AND THE N.O. SAINTS WERE ALL WINNERS ON SEP 23RD!

What a Great weekend here at OLDP!  The OLDP Family Day/Saints Tailgate Party was a great success with so many families attending.  The children enjoyed two bouncy castles, horseshoes,  bean-bag toss (Chuck-O), soccer contest and some other great activities while the parents enjoyed the Saints game with three large screen TV's available to watch the game!

The OLDP Knights of Columbus Council had several prominent members present and provided free grilled hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixin's; the OLDP cheerleaders were selling iced tea and lemonade; and Tommy Thomas donated free grilled hamburgers as well.  Tommy also provided one of the TV's and some game sound effects with an eardrum piercing horn that he blasted for several seconds every time the Saints scored!  Bubba Villarrubbia and Betsy Alvarenga from the OLDP Fair Committee had OLDP T-Shirts they were giving away, and were front row cheerleaders while watching the game. Earl Gervais showed the game on the TV in the St. Lawrence Room and had cold beverages for those who preferred to sit in air conditioned comfort during the New Orleans/Atlanta conflict!

If you weren't there, you missed a great time as we supported our church parish and the New Orleans Saints.  Thank you to all who participated in providing so much to assure the success of our party, and thank you to all who enjoyed what we hope is our first annual Family Day/Saints Tailgate Party.
