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.

Franciscan Catechetical Institute

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).

The Office of Catechetics has a short 3 minute video on their webpage that will direct you on how to create an account. Click Here to watch the video and begin to create your 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.
