Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
The Gospel this week calls us to reconciliation. God calls us to build and maintain relationships through cooperation. If we are serious about building the kingdom on earth, we must be intentional about how we deal with each other in a healthy way. With the help of God’s love we can move toward forgiveness and resolve toe conflicts that we have in our lives.
There is a program that I want to challenge everyone to watch on FORMED.org. “Put Not Your Trust in Princes” By Christopher Check. Mr. Check speaks to the time that we are in and provides a catholic perspective of the crisis of our age. The FORMED.org parish password is 77GVZ3.
We are living in constantly changing times, but two things that are not changing are our devotion to our parish and it's needs. We know many of our lives have been turned upside down in the last 5 months. The STHY has been too. We need, same as you, to know what's coming in so we can budget what goes out. I'm not asking you to give more; I'm asking you to give DIFFERENTLY. By going to the website and signing up for RECURRING online giving, you let the parish know we can count on your support weekly.

. Automatic giving helps us budget and plan. Thank you the time is NOW and the need is CRITICAL.
Open our Hearts: a Pastoral letter on racism was released in 2018 by the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops. The USCCB describes this letter as “But racism still profoundly affects our culture, and it has no place in the Christian heart. This evil causes great harm to its victims, and it corrupts the souls of those who harbor racist or prejudicial thoughts. The persistence of the evil of racism is why we are writing this letter now.” I am challenging every one of our parish to go download this letter and review it. Please go to parish website and click directly on the banner/ tile named “Open our Hearts” and it will take you to the pastoral letter.

.This page will be updated as new information becomes available regarding the needs in Beaumont and Lake Charles in the aftermath of the storm.
Finally, I want to remind everyone that our offices are closed on Monday September 7
, for Labor Day. Please keep all who labor in your prayers as we honor the dignity of human work on that day. Let us all pray also for those searching for gainful employment in these times and those who have recently been downsized, laid off or seen a reduction in their pay or work hours. May they not become discouraged and may God open new doors for them soon.
