It's 2015! This entire year we are 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.
We will have various celebrations this year commemorating our 75th. However, I want to make sure it's more than just celebrations among ourselves. Invite the Lord into those celebrations also. Don't forget to say a few prayers of thanks to God for all the blessings he has showered upon us.
God has been good to us. Let's not forget that!
