DIVINE MERCY DAILY REFLECTIONS (Jesus speaking to St. Faustina in bold print; from the Diary of St. Faustina)
Tell My Priests
Hardened Sinners Will Repent...
The Lord said to me, My daughter, do not tire of proclaiming My mercy. In this way you will refresh this Heart of Mine, which burns with a flame of pity for sinners. Tell My priests that hardened sinners will repent on hearing their words when they speak about My unfathomable mercy, about the compassion I have for them in My Heart. To priests who proclaim and extol My mercy, I will give wondrous power; I will anoint their words and touch the hearts of those to whom they will speak (Diary, 1521).

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.
In the human family, which God decided to join, there can be no closer bond than mother and child. They belong together, their destinies are intertwined. That is one of the central messages of the pro-life movement. To love and care for a mother necessarily means protecting, loving and caring for her child.

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, November 18-26, 2016
Join Fr. Bill Melancon and Deacon Tim Marcantel on a Pilgrimage to the Holy Land. In a real way, making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land draws us closer to Jesus of Nazareth. The Scriptures will come alive as we visit Our Lord's homeland, and each day, we will have time to re-new and affirm our faith -- to pray and reflect. The group will visit Nazareth, Cana, Mount of Beatitudes, Holy Sepulchre and much more. For more information, call 337-291-1933.
