Thursday of this week we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. Mass that day will be at 9am and I hope to see you there. As usual, our offertory for that day will be for ICONS, our interfaith food pantry. During the holiday season, ICONS gets stretched to provide food for those in need, so your support will be especially helpful at the Thanksgiving Mass. For those who would like to donate food items, boxes have been placed in the church by each of the entrances for that purpose.
Although Thanksgiving is a secular holiday, it is certainly religious in its theme. This year, our church parish community has much for which to thank God. … Read More
What a busy time, and an exciting time, it has been for our parish over the last month or so. From the Festival de la Grande Eglise to the Cemetery Tours to All Saints and All Souls Day and our Annual Memorial Mass. Of course, for me personally, my father’s death and burial has given me a new perspective on our prayers for the dead and appreciation for those who God has placed in my life to help me along the path of faith.
My thanks again to you all for the outpouring of prayers, cards, flowers, phone calls, texts and support at Dad’s funeral. … Read More
Many thanks to all who participated in our Memorial Mass on All Souls Day last Thursday. Unfortunately, due to my father’s passing, I was unable to be there as I was in Philadelphia, PA for his committal service. I’m sure, as usual, it was a beautiful liturgy, and I know the families who grieve appreciate the support of those who were able to attend. I will be one of those people next year. We thank all our servers, extraordinary ministers, lectors, choir members and sacristans, as well as Deacon Joubert who coordinated the liturgy. Their work and dedication is very much appreciated.… Read More

Although the weather got shaky last weekend, our Cemetery Tours were once again a great success. There was much preparation and hard work put into this year’s tours by many people. We thank the Cemetery Tour Committee and all those who supported, assisted and helped in making this year’s tours such a great success. We also want to thank all who came and took the tour, both parishioners of St. Landry Church and our visitors. Proceeds from the tours are used for tomb repair. Traditionally, in October and November we remember and reverence those who have gone before us and have handed down to us their faith, culture and wisdom.… Read More
