Confirmation Retreat

Dear Parishioners,

Please be aware that I will be out of the parish next weekend to attend the Confirmation retreat with our juniors. The retreat will be held at the Lumen Christi Retreat Center in Houma, LA. Msgr. Mallet, the Vicar General for our Diocese, has graciously agreed to cover most of the Masses here at St. Peter’s on this weekend.

This year our Confirmation program consists of a joint effort of three parishes coming together. The students from Our Lady of Perpetual Help, New Iberia and St. Nicholas, Lydia are together with our own St. Peter students. The classes are taught by Sr. Mary Peter and Fr. Korey LaVergne, Associate Pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. I ask that you pray for all the confirmandi as this retreat is a very important and powerful part of their sacramental preparation.

Veni Sancte Spiritus!

Fr. Blanda

Pray for Those in Sacramental Preparation

We ask the prayers of our parish community for those parishioners of ours that are currently receiving instruction in the sacramental life of the Church. Currently we have 34 students in our First Communion program, 12 students in our Confirmation program and 1 candidate in our RCIA program.

Our First Communion children received their first Confession on Saturday, January 18th. They will be making their first Holy Communion on Sunday, April 26th.

Our Confirmation students will receive their Confirmation on Sunday, February 16th.

Our RCIA candidate is scheduled to be received into the Church at the Easter Vigil (April 11th).
