Fr. Glodd has been made pastor of St. Joseph Church in Plaisance and its mission in Frilot Cove beginning July 2nd. Let us all congratulate him and keep him and his people in our prayers as he embarks upon this new ministry. We will have a farewell reception for him in the commons of the high school on July 1st after his last Mass which will be the 10:00 am Sunday morning Mass. Please come out and wish him well.

We are very happy to announce our new parochial vicar, Deacon Blake Steven Dubroc, son of Ted Dubroc and Sandra Leger Laborde, a 33-year-old native of Marksville, LA. He graduated from LSU in Political Science and went on to become an independent insurance agent and started his own company in Lafayette. He entered the seminary through Our Lady of Wisdom Parish at UL and attended St. Joseph Seminary in St. Benedict, LA at the Abbey and then Notre Dame in New Orleans. Deacon Dubroc will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, June 23 at the Cathedral at 10:00 am. He will be our new associate beginning Monday, July 2nd.

We are also happy to announce a priest in residence, Deacon Ben Pitre. Deacon Pitre was with us last summer and will be with us again this summer until he returns to Rome for his final year of theology in order to get a license in Moral Theology. He will be the sacramental minister for Morrow and Whiteville while Fr. Tom holds the administrator job there. Deacon Pitre is the 34-year-old son of Benny Pitre and Sue Hebert Pitre. A native of Prairie Ronde, he graduated from Opelousas Catholic in 2002. He graduated from LSU in 2006 with an electrical engineering degree. Then he became a submarine officer in the US Navy for 5 years. Finally, he entered the seminary through St. Landry Church in Opelousas and spent 2 years at St. Joseph Seminary College and then 4 years at the North American College in Rome. Deacon Ben will also be ordained June 23rd and will begin his assignment on July 2nd.

Let us welcome them both wholeheartedly when they arrive and keep them and their 5 classmates in our prayers as they prepare for priestly ordination!

Parishioners For Life

Parishioners For Life—Motivating Members to Help End Abortion

The Eucharist and Unity

Imagine a person who receives Communion, accepts the Host when the priest says, “The Body of Christ,” says “Amen,” and then breaks off a piece, hands it back, and says, “Except this piece, Father!” This is what the person who rejects other people may as well do. In receiving Christ, we are to receive the whole Christ, in all his members, our brothers and sisters, whether convenient or inconvenient, wanted or unwanted, born or unborn.

As St. John remarks, Christ was to die “to gather into one all the scattered children of God.” Sin scatters. Christ unites. The word “diabolical” means “to split asunder.” Christ came “to destroy the works of the devil” (1Jn.3:8). The Eucharist builds up the human family in Christ who says, “Come to me, feed on My Body, become My Body.” Abortion, in a reverse dynamic, says, “Go away! We have no room for you, no time for you, no desire for you, no responsibility for you. Get out of our way!” Abortion attacks the unity of the human family by splitting asunder the most fundamental relationship between any two persons: mother and child. The Eucharist, as a Sacrament of Unity, reverses the dynamic of abortion.
