Fr. Vincent’s Video Series for Easter Season 2020

As we spent time listening to the Sacred Scriptures and offering the prayers for the liturgies of Holy Week, we continue to do the same through the Easter Season, seeking God’s inspiration and grace to maintain our faith connection to God and Church.

Fr Vincent's video and Fr Vincent's Letter on 12 May 2020 - - Governor John Bel Edwards is moving the State of Louisiana into Phase I reopening as of Friday, May 15, 2020.  Bishop Michael Duca, as Bishop of the Diocese of Baton Rouge has communicated to all the faithful of our diocese what that means for us as Catholics of this Diocese in his General Directive on 11 May 2020. So here is my way of applying the Governor’s and Bishop’s directives for the Catholic Church in East St. James Civil Parish.

Good Shepard Sunday: “Good Shepard” Sunday – Jesus makes the simple statement: “My sheep hear my voice and they follow me.” This is our opportunity to reflect on how well we listen to the voice of Jesus.

3rd Sunday of Easter: As the disciples traveled to Emmaus feeling lost and downcast, Jesus came to them and offered them an understanding of the Scriptures which inflamed their hearts so they could recognize His presence. We pray this will be our experience, too
