Devotion of the Month

JULY ~ MONTH OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD
The month of July traditionally honors the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. It is the blood of Christ, the Lamb of God, which cleanses from sin—therefore the Church developed a devotion to Jesus’ physical blood and its mystical power, just as it did for His Sacred Heart from which His blood poured out on the Cross. The Precious Blood of Jesus courses through the Church spiritually, giving eternal life to the Body of Christ through the sacraments. Many saints had a devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus, especially St. Catherine of Siena. Devotion to the Precious Blood spread widely through the preaching of Saint Gaspar del Bufalo, who was a 19th-century priest and the founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. This devotion was later approved and recommended by the Holy See. The feast day of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus is July 1st.

Religious Education Program

+ Religious Education Program +

Director of Religious Education: Tiffany Tate Alfred

Phone: 363.5167  Email: olqasdre@centurytel.net

The Diocese of Lafayette has partnered with Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, to give everyone in the diocese access to workshops that can help in their religious formation. Although some of the workshops are geared towards teachers, many simply give information on topics that many of us want to know more about (i.e. the Eucharist, Mary, New Testament, Old Testament). All you have to do is go to www.franciscanathome.com/diolaf to begin to create your account. The Office of Catechetics has a short 3 minute video on their webpage that will direct you on how to create an account. Our parish has already been placed in the system, so all you have to do is create your personal account. We believe this is a wonderful opportunity for us to grow in our faith.

CCD Registration forms for the 2019-2020 school year have been mailed out. Please return the registration form to  OLQAS Family Life Center and pick up your book from Tiffany Alfred by August 1st. There will be a $5.00 late fee for any registration forms turned in after August 1st.
