My Dear People of God,

In Southwest Louisiana we are  not  strangers to dangerous situations. We have faced hurricanes and the  catastrophes they bring with perseverance and courage.     Should we  not  face  accompanying challenges in  the Church with the same determination?  With  God's help we certainly can.
