Fr. Randy Moreau, pastor at OLQAS from 1997-2007, returned for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe as the guest speaker for the December Back-to-Basics lecture. Very appropriately, Fr. Moreau discussed the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin to (St.) Juan Diego in 1531; the miraculous image on the tilma; and the relevance of the message for us today. More than 100 people attended the lecture.
Fr. Moreau is now pastor at St. John the Evangelist Church in Mermentau (with a mission church in Estherwood, St. Margaret of Scotland).

On the evening of Gaudete Sunday, Fr. Gregory Heslip, LC, provided a wonderful Solemn Holy Hour of Adoration and Reflection, focusing on how we should prepare our hearts in humility and charity to receive Our Lord at Christmas.
During his reflection, Fr. Heslip shared the heart-warming story from Matt Miles, “Pa and the Rifle”. If you want to read the story, click here. (It can be heard in Part 2 of the recordings below.)

Guest lecturer Fr. Clinton Sensat gave a great talk about Marian Apparitions to a crowd of nearly 100 people, as part of the Back-t0-Basics lecture series. In the 50 minute-long talk, Fr. Sensat identified the apparitions as private revelation, explaining the significance of that; discussed the possible modes of the apparitions; examined how the Church concludes whether or not the apparition is of supernatural origin; and looked at three lesser-known apparitions.
Fr. Sensat, now pastor at St. Thomas More Church in Eunice, is the former parochial vicar at Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Ville Platte.
The next Back-to-Basics lecture will be on Nov. 14: “A Primer on Purgatory and Indulgences” by Fr. Taj Glodd, the current parochial vicar at Sacred Heart.
