1st Sunday of Advent

Pastor’s Message

  • There will be a second collection next weekend, December 8-9, at all Masses to support the Religious Retirement Fund. This annual collection helps to support the many consecrated women and men who taught in our schools, worked in hospitals and parishes all for a meager wage. As fewer women and men are entering religious life and because of a lack of able-bodied professed members to support them, their finances are now in jeopardy. Your financial assistance helps to support these women and men who have given their lives to the Church. Thanks in advance for your generosity!
  • On Saturday, December 15th, a Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. at the St. Felicitas worship-site to honor the memory of the Most Rev. Dominic Carmon, retired Auxiliary Bishop of New Orleans who died on November 11th. Bishop Carmon served as Pastor of St. Elizabeth and Our Lady of the Garden Parishes here in the Archdiocese for many years. All are welcome to attend!
