Transition of Parochial Vicars
Bishop Jarrell recently announced that Sacred Heart and St. Joseph would receive a new Parochial Vicar on July 1, 2015. Fr. Brian Harrington has served our parishes for two years and will now serve St. Mary Magdalen church in Abbeville as the Parochial Vicar. Our new Parochial Vicar will be Fr. Matthew Barzare, a native of Eunice, and current Parochial Vicar of Holy Rosary Church in Kaplan. Please pray for Fr. Harrington and Fr. Barzare during this transition.
In a joint effort between the men of Our Lady Queen of All Saints and Sacred Heart Church Parishes, That Man Is You! was started in Ville Platte in early September of 2013 and was a huge success. The group had an average of well over 50 men attend each of the Fall and Spring sessions. The upcoming Spring Sessions are open to all Men in the area, including those who were not able to participate during the Sessions last year. WHEREVER YOU ARE IN YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE, JESUS CHRIST WANTS TO ENCOUNTER YOU RIGHT THERE….AND TAKE YOU FURTHER.
That Man is You! is a 26 week interactive men’s program combining the best research from science with the teachings of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of a man fully alive. By honestly addressing the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, the nationwide program called That Man is You! seeks to form men who will be capable of transforming homes and society.
As with Year 1 Spring Session, the Year 2 Spring session will include a special “Lenten Journey” that will fall in line with the upcoming weeks of Lent.
Consider joining the men of your community in this free weekly program to grow in faith this year!
