OLDP updates
      This week, Tuesday, September 18th through Thursday, September 20th, all of the Priest in our Archdiocese will be attending our Annual Convocation in New Orleans.
      Wednesday and Thursday morning Deacon Dan will be having Communion Services in the Adoration Chapel.
      On Thursday evening, September 20th, we will begin our next session of RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). Any adult wishing to go through our classes to become Catholic or any Adult Catholics who have not made 1st Communion or Confirmation and would like to do so please contact the Church Office 466-4511.
      Sunday, September 23, 2018 is Family Day in the Archdiocese. Last year we tried to do an outdoor picnic on Saturday but only 12 people showed so, this year, we are trying something different. We would like to hold a Saints Tailgate Party on Sunday, September 23rd following the 10 a.m. Mass until 3:00 p.m. that afternoon. Everyone is invited to the Tailgate Party. We will be cancelling the 12 Noon Mass to encourage people to stay and enjoy the event. We are also asking all of our Ministries, Organizations, Prayer Groups, School & School of Religion, CYO, Scouts, etc. to come out, participate, and bring your family.
      Those organizations wishing to cook & sell food items, drinks, desserts, can contact Earl Gervais in the Church Office 466-4511. However, we are inviting people to bring their tents, chairs, portable TVs, radios, games, ice chests, food, drink, grills or whatever you need for the Tailgate Party.
      There is an away Saints Game that day, at Noon, versus the Falcons. We have a large TV in the Youth building and are currently working on several ways to air the game. Please wear your Saints attire. We should have a Volleyball net set up for games and flags for Flag football along with some bounce castles. I bought 2 rubber horseshoe games and one metal.
      This can be a great family fun event but only if people participate. Hope you will come.

God bless you,

Fr. Mike
