Our Lady of the Lake
DIVINE MERCY DAILY REFLECTIONS (Jesus speaking to St. Faustina in bold print; from the Diary of St. Faustina)
I Am Always with You
Know, My daughter, that you caused Me more sorrow by not uniting yourself with Me in Holy Communion than you did by that small transgression (Diary, 612).
All of us including the smallest children, have angels in heaven who worship the father and reflect to us his care. If an Angel is assigned to guard each human life, how much more are fellow human beings called to respect them. Lord, fill us with the awe and reverence for life. Though we are not able to see the Angels, remind us of their presence through the face of every human person. Father Provone.

Prayer for a Successful Diocesan Centennial Campaign
Heavenly Father, give us the grace to build your Kingdom in our Diocese. We can only accomplish this noble task by allowing You to expand our hearts. Grant us compassionate hearts for the poor and suffering among us, hopeful hearts for the men now in seminary, grateful hearts to provide care for the well-being of our retired priests, and zealous hearts for the formation of our Catholic college students. As we look to their future and the celebration of the Centennial of our Diocese, we want to give You our faithful hearts. It is only with faithful hearts the our Diocesan campaign will bear fruit and assist You in the building up of Your Kingdom. With Mary our Mother, and moved by the Holy Spirit, we make this prayer through Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We entrust our humble efforts to You, with a plea for success, as we reach out to those who need us. -Amen
New Mausoleum in Delcambre
Where Will Your Final Resting Place Be?
Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that preplanning your final resting place offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With preplanning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted and exactly where they wanted to be laid to rest. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Our Lady of the Lake Cemetery will be constructing a new mausoleum soon. Joe Blanchard and Howard Theriot from American Cemetery consultants, have already begun contacting parishioners to answer questions. Please don't delay. Spaces are reserved on a first come basis and financing is available. The number of crypts selected before construction will determine the size of the mausoleum.
Either mail in the postage reply card from the brochure that was mailed to your home or call 337-735-4600.
