Like many of us, I continue to grapple with understanding the scope, magnitude and duration of the Coronavirus pandemic. I have, however, come to an understanding of the important role that we each can play in mitigating the potential loss of life. As hospital beds in our area fill, we all need to do our part in limiting the spread of this virus. Staying inside and observing the mandates from our leaders (both spiritual and political—Bishop and Governor) is essential. I fully support the stay at home order and pray that our energies and practices support this effort.
That is why we have decided to forego worship inside of the church. We will however continue with the Facebook Live “broadcast” for the foreseeable future including Holy Week and Easter. Please join your faith community by going to:
You may be prompted to sign in or create an account, but it is not required. Simply click on the “no thanks” or the “x” and then scroll down until you see the words “LIVE” (probably in red) and then click on that picture. The video should then begin.
Here are the ways you can join the prayers of our community:
On a call with clergy from across the area, Jefferson Parish President Cynthia Lee Sheng asked us to pass along some information.
O God, you manifest in your servants the signs of your presence: Send forth upon us the spirit of love, that in companionship with one another your abounding grace may increase among us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
