come, lord jesus

The Cathedral of St. Francis de Sales is offering an opportunity to study the life-giving Word of God in the “Come, Lord Jesus” Bible Study Program just in time for Lent! The program consists of a weekly gathering of a small group of people in a designated home, who study the upcoming Sunday readings for Mass. Books, study guides and the proper format for the gatherings are provided. This program was established by Fr. Conley Bertrand, a priest of the Diocese of Lafayette, and has been in place now for over 40 years. It has transforming power, building community and making people holy - and lovers of the WORD!  Numerous groups have already formed - at various times and days to fit everyone's schedule!   Call the rectory for more information - or to sign up!!

JOURNEY OF HOPE
spring family picnic

Journey of Hope seeks to walk the journey of grief with others in the hope that by compassionate listening and sharing of our own experience, we can provide avenues of healing which will bring to those who grieve a renewal of faith and hope. The Cathedral of St. Francis de Sales will offer 8-week support sessions to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one through death. Our next session will begin on Thursday, April 20th through June 8th 2017, from 6:30 - 8:00 PM, also in the Youth Center. Please call the rectory office at 876-6904 to register or for more information.

As an official Bread or Stones Campaign Congregation, the Cathedral of St. Francis de Sales has teamed up with St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church and are working to help the children at Legion Park Elementary School. As stated on the Terrebonne Parish School Board website, 95% of the children attending Legion School are “economically disadvantaged”, which means 95% are living at the poverty level.  Join us as we gather together with our Christian brothers and sisters to help find ways to better educate and support the children of this school!  Let us ask - what gift do I have to offer in this endeavor?


“Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone?” (Matthew 7:9) How are we answering Jesus’ question? 

Vacation Bible School registration is OPEN NOW until Monday, June 12th for children age 4 through 6th grade. VBS will be held in the Youth Center from 9 a.m. till 12 noon. The cost is $25.00 (includes one t-shirt). Additional t-shirt is $8. Registration forms (green paper) can be found on the tables at the doors of the church. Teen volunteers are needed to help with VBS. If you are interested, pick up a volunteer registration form (yellow paper) located on the tables at the doors of the church. For more information call Mrs. Jane Lirette at 856-5488.

​​​HOSPITAL VISITS

We would like to inform our parishioners if you are entering the hospital or have a loved one currently in the hospital and you would like one of our priests to visit, you can contact the church office at 876-6904. When you register at the hospital, tell them that you are Catholic and your parish is St. Francis de Sales so your name can be placed on the directory; otherwise, the Parish Priests have no way of knowing that you are in the hospital.

 

KIOSK CART

Visit our Kiosk Cart in the foyer which offers inspiring resources to deepen your faith. The Kiosk cart features some of the world’s best Catholic speaks and authors. You can listen to a CD in your car or at home and then pass the CD on to someone else.New titles will be offered after the current ones run out. So keep checking back! Items are marked with prices.  Donations to cover some of the cost of these materials would be greatly appreciated. You can also place an order through Lighthouse Catholic Media for your favorite CD, booklets, books or pamphlets to share with family and friends. This is a great way to evangelize. Great bundle packages are offered for each Liturgical Season. Please use the Cathedral Promo Code 102340 when ordering. A portion of your order will be credited to the Cathedral. If there is a particular CD, book, or pamphlet that you would like to recommend for the kiosk cart, call the Cathedral Office with the title.
