Next Sunday, November 26, is Christ the King Sunday, marking the last Sunday of the Church Year when we also celebrate Totenfest by remembering those from our families and family of faith who have returned home in the previous Church Year. If you would like a name included in the Totenfest Memorial, please add it to the list in the narthex.
Adult Bible study is reading through the Book of Isaiah. We meet each Monday evening at 6:30 PM in the conference room. Please join us!
Please be reminded that we continue to collect non-perishable food items for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans. So, when you're making your groceries at Schwegmann's, pick up an extra can of Blue Runner Red Beans or some other items to donate to the food bank!
If you are in need of assistance with something due to accident, illness, or other unplanned life event, please drop a note in the "help box" in the narthex. Parishioners have signed up to be Shepherd's Helpers for those in need by cooking, transportation to doctor visits, small repairs, and other odds and ends. For more information, please see Joe Edwards, Sarah Noel, or Fr. Randall.
Each week, the Eternal Flame sanctuary lamp is changed out and blessed. If you would like to offer the Eternal Flame in memory of a loved, please see the Eternal Flame red folder in the narthex for open dates. The suggested minimum honorarium for Eternal Flame dedication is $15.
Would you like to honor a birthday, anniversary, or other celebration? Would you like a deceased love one prayerfully remembered? Complete one of the blue Celebration and Remembrance forms located in the narthex. The suggested minimum honorarium for a Celebration or Remembrance is $5.
