The ministry of hospitality is very important to our Liturgical Celebrations. We are called to be welcoming and helpful to all who enter our doors. It is our primary concern and duty to help those who have gathered in any way that we can, including making them feel at home. Ministers of Hospitality are the first to greet those gathering and the last ones to say goodbye after worship has ended.
As Ministers of Hospitality, we are cheerful, patient, kind, understanding, and genuinely concerned for the welfare of those in our midst. We approach our ministry with reverence, humility, and a grateful heart. We are called to “be Christ” to everyone who enters the door, and we are called to embrace them as Christ embraces us. If you are interested in learning more about this ministry, please call the church office.
We would like to welcome our new bishop for Baton Rouge! See below for event information.
This weekend Fr. Lamar will be coming to speak about the Co-Redemptorist Association.
Co-Redemptorists are lay men and women who take an active role in helping to recruit and support young men who choose to pursue religious life as Redemptorist priests and brothers.
In the past 50 years, Co-Redemptorists have helped over 300 men become Redemptorist priests and brothers. Co-Redemptorists close the gap between our costs for educating our seminarians and our resources from past gifts and savings. We suggest that each Co-Redemptorist offer to cover the gap for one seminarian for one day each month. This gap is $15 a day for each seminarian in the program. Co-Redemptorists are currently aiding 88 seminarians to become Redemptorists in three countries: USA, Brazil and Nigeria.
