A Message from the Pastor

The 43 “pilgrims” from St. Joseph Cathedral Parish who bussed to New Orleans last Saturday on a day-trip will attest: we had a great time! We visited 4 historic churches – St. Mary’s Italian Church at the Old Ursuline Convent in the French Quarter, St. Augustine Church in the Treme neighborhood, and St. Patrick’s Church on Camp Street (these are three of the four oldest in the archdiocese, after St. Louis Cathedral) and Immaculate Conception Church on Baronne Street (famously known as “The Jesuit Church”). Naturally, their architectures and artworks were inspiring. Yet courtesy of Dr. Lee Leumas, the archdiocesan archivist who joined us, we learned a great deal of the history of the Faith and faithful in the Crescent City. Even more importantly, we got to share in the graces of the sacred places where this faith blossomed and was nourished.

Special Events


Sat., June 25
LOTC Baby Shower
Our very own “Ladies of the Cathedral” will hold their annual Baby Shower after all of the Masses. Donations of baby necessities, such as diapers, wipes, bottles, new or “gently used” clothing and other supplies, will be collected for distribution to residents housed at the Sanctuary for Life, a home for unwed mothers operated by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Baton Rouge. This ministry assists needy expectant mothers and their newborn babies. Cash donations are also appreciated. Please visit the Baby Shower to deliver your gifts for God’s tiniest blessings!

Sun., June 26
Anointing of the Sick
Our Parish administers the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick on the last Sunday of the month, immediately following our 12 noon Mass. This “Sacrament of the Sick” can be received by Catholics over the age of 7 who are suffering from either chronic or acute serious illness, facing major surgery, or are significantly enfeebled by old age.
Please invite all who are in these circumstances to come benefit from this special moment of prayer and blessing. The relics of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos are available for veneration during the administration of the Sacrament, and all of the sick receive a special blessing with it.
