Baptism to fulfill the mission of the Catholic Church: to
proclaim the works of God and to live as Jesus taught.
Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we will improve
our lives by continuing to understand the teachings of the Catholic Church, sharing with
the poor, providing support for our young people, the sick and the lonely, worshipping
with reverence and enthusiasm, providing stewardship for the gifts God has committed to
our care, and celebrating together as a Christian family.

dedicated the decade with special prayers from our students. Mrs. Winnie Hunter, Mrs. Bernadine Holder,
Mrs. Jean Neucere, Mrs. Hazel Truitt, and Mrs. Irene
Fontenot were the recipients of the spiritual balloon bouquets. Many thanks to Fr. John Paul for his presentation
