Adult? Not Confirmed?  #890 of the Church’s Code of Canon Law says that “the faithful are obliged to receive this sacrament at the proper time.” This might be that time for you! We will be starting our spring series of adult Confirmation preparation sessions January 14, 2020.  They take place on Tuesday evenings 7-8:10 pm. If you are interested, please contact Fr. Gregg Grovenburg, S.J. at 504-865-2328 or email him at [email protected]


Reconciliation is every Saturday from 3:00PM – 3:45PM, Monday through Friday after the 6:30 AM Mass (7 – 7:25) and by appointment by calling 865-7430.

For Anointing, please call the office at 865-7430.


Baptisms are offered for our parishioners following the 10:30AM Mass.  All godparents and parents are to attend a one hour baptism class which is usually on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00PM.  Please call the parish office at 865-7430 to register for the class or to make arrangements for a baptism.


Children in the second grade will make their First Communion.  Those children not in Catholic schools must attend PSR classes in the second grade and will make their First Communion with the Holy Name of Jesus students.  Contact Patty Mathes [email protected] 504-865-7430. x206


The Sacrament of Matrimony is a very special one.  The times of our weddings are 7:30PM on Fridays and 11:00AM, 1:00PM and 7:00PM on Saturdays.

We do not have weddings on Friday nights during Lent.

Know someone who wants to become a Catholic? Please have them contact Mr. George White: [email protected] or 504-813-9450  Our RCIA sessions begin  each September. Breaking open the word is done at the 6 pm Sunday Mass. Participants sit in the first pews on the Loyola side. They are dismissed with their leader after the prayers of the faithful.  They meet in the sacristy (behind the altar) to study the readings for that Sunday.  The participants also meet weekly on Monday at 7 pm in the North Room of the Parish Center for presentations on the Catholic faith.
