This entire year (2015) we have been celebrating our 75th Anniversary as a parish. St. Paschal Church in West Monroe came into existence in 1940. Now, 75 years later, we are thriving more than ever.
The first Mass celebrated at St. Paschal Parish was at midnight on Christmas, 1940. As we prepare to celebrate Christmas as a faith community for the 75th time, let's not forget what we are celebrating - the incredible fact that God came to be with us so that we could be with him forever.
Our culmintaing Mass for our 75th Anniversary will be held on Sunday, January 17, at 10 a.m. All friends and former members are surely welcome to be with us that day.
God has been good to us!
Fr. Frank Coens, OFM
