Red Bird Ministries: Loving Through Loss

The death of a child is never easy and grief is experienced differently by everyone. Red Bird Ministries is a Catholic grief support ministry that focuses on couples who have experienced the loss of a child of any age by loving them through their loss. Core team members of Red Bird Ministries are parents of loss and know all too well what it is to live through such a horrific experience. Our goal is to help couples living this nightmare to not just survive their loss, but to love them through it by sharing our own experiences and healings, in hopes of helping them to survive and thrive in their marriages and in life. Please contact Kelly Breaux at (337) 223-2019 or at kelly@redbird.love for more information. Visit our website at www.redbird.love.

Meet Our New Transitional Deacon…

My name is Casey Rene Dugas and I am the transitional deacon who has been assigned to your parish for a period of pastoral internship. In order to introduce myself here is some information about myself.  I am 25 years of age and am originally from the New Iberia area, specifically growing up between Loureaville and St. Martinville, though I study for Sacred Heart in Baldwin, La. I am a 2013 graduate from Catholic High School. I have one younger brother, named Kelly, and come from a family rooted in providing service work in the oilfield through the family business of natural gas compressor repair. Upon graduating from high school I entered seminary formation and proceeded to graduate from St. Joseph Seminary College in 2017 and am now entering my final year of seminary studies at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans. Some interesting facts about myself.  I am an avid outdoorsman enjoying hunting, fishing, and camping. I was also an amateur forester during my time in college seminary. I possess some proficiency in three languages (English, Spanish, and Latin), unfortunately, French is not one of them though I am very willing to learn. I also really love to cook almost as much as I enjoy eating a good meal. I look forward to getting to know you, the parishioners of Sacred Heart and pray that my time in your parish will be one of many mutual blessings for all. I hope to start in the parish June 1 though you may see me around earlier and I urge all of you not to hesitate to pull me aside to talk or even invite me to your homes. I enjoy a good cup of coffee and conversation and would be delighted to be invited to your homes to enjoy both. I am being sent to your parish to serve you in my role as a deacon and hopefully through the internship round out my final year of formation to make me the best candidate for the priesthood before I am ordained next year. In this way, I see this upcoming time in your parish as one that is exceedingly special and important. This is why I am so excited to be assigned to your parish. I hope to get to know all of you during my time of internship in your parish.

Sincerely,

Dcn. Casey Rene Dugas

Meet Our New Parochial Vicar!

Dear parishioners,

My name is Fr. Andrew Killeen and the bishop has graciously assigned me as the new parochial vicar of Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, its mission of Sacred Heart in Belaire Cove and St. Joseph Catholic Church. I am grateful to the bishop in giving me this assignment. I also cannot wait to begin my priestly assignment. Though I plan to explain more about my background once I get there, I am a native of Lafayette and come from St. Pius X Catholic Church. I also attended Catholic school my entire life and am excited to use my many experiences before and in seminary to serve all of you. Please know that I have been praying for all of you since I was given my assignment. I hope all of us will grow closer to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus together! I am looking forward to meeting all of you.

In Christ,

Fr. Andrew Killeen
