Prayer for Vocations

O God, Father of all Mercies,
Provider of a bountiful Harvest,
send Your Graces upon those
You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor;
preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.

Open the hearts of Your children
that they may discern Your Holy Will;
inspire in them a love and desire to surrender themselves
to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.

Teach all Your faithful to follow their respective paths in life
guided by Your Divine Word and Truth.
Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
all the Angels, and Saints, humbly hear our prayers
and grant Your Church's needs, through Christ, our Lord.




Universal: Social Networks
That social networks may work towards that inclusiveness
which respects others for their differences.

Evangelization – Priests and their Pastoral Ministry
That priests,
who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work,
may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord
and in their friendship with their brother priests.

Welcome! We would like to welcome you to our parish family. In order to better serve you, please fill out a registration card located at the entrances of the church and leave it with an usher or deposit it in the collection plate. You may also register by stopping by the church office.

2018 Catholic Faith Appeal

Bible Study 
June 6-Aug 15 Parish Center
10am - 11:30am


O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. 
The Sea of Galilee obeyed Your order and returned to its former quietude. You are still the Master 
of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control: the Gulf, 
like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its 
conventional boundaries, invade our land, and spread chaos and disaster. 

During this hurricane season we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose 
memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with passing of time. 

O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son on our 
behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true
spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the 
heavenly Jerusalem, where a stormless eternity awaits us. 


[Composed by Most Rev. Maurice Schexnayder (1895-1981), Second Bishop of Lafayette 
(1956-1973), following Hurricane Audrey in 1957]
