Late again with the blog! So many things have been  happening in April at St Paschal. busy bees I missed part of the month as I was in Houston with my husband. He is on the mend and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their prayers.

Holy Week and Easter were beautiful and moving experiences. Father Pike said the events were the most gratifying of his career. He has been such a blessing to our parish.

The Flower Ministry worked very hard this month.  The church was beautiful during this time.  The Easter decorations were magnificent.  They work with so many different ministries to help make their events look great!

The St Paschal Society of St Vincent de Paul has been able to increase their caseload because of the kind and generous donations from our parish. We have also been able to purchase Food Cards which are available at the church office for those who call or come to the office in need of help with food. Our conference has been asked to host a special seminar for the Eastern Deanery of SVDP on Saturday, June 25.  The speaker will be Jim Beetles who heads SVDP for the Diocese of Shreveport. All members of SVDP in the Eastern Deanery will be there for this important learning experience.

 We have been so busy and we need more help to carry out our mission.  Please consider joining our ministry, we meet the second Monday of each month at 6:00 pm in the St Francis Room.

Another busy month coming in May, until then Peace,
