You are invited to join us for our new season of Back-to-Basics Lectures. The free talks are open to the public. They are held every 2nd Monday of the month, from 5:30-6:30 pm, at the Family Life Center.

Mark your calendars: Join us for a monthly, 8-part Bible Study on Jesus Christ‘s nature, personality, and mission. This video series will examine the Four Gospels to see how each one gives us an insight into Jesus as God, Man, Savior, and Friend.
The free series will be the 3rd Monday of every month, starting Sept. 18. It will be from 5:30-6:30 pm in the Family Life Center. If you would like, you will be able to order an $8 lecture guide at the first meeting, but it is not necessary. Please join us and bring a friend.
Be on the look-out for more information about the upcoming seasons of the Back-to-Basics Lecture Series and the monthly Bible Study.
Although the schedule of topics/speakers for Back-to-Basics is not finalized, the Bible Study video series will focus on The Christ: A Faithful Picture of Jesus from the Gospels. It is an 8-session study, with an examination of Christ’s personality, nature, and mission as revealed in the Four Gospels. Read more here.
The Back-to-Basics talks will be every 2nd Monday of the month; and the Bible Study will be every 3rd Monday. They will both be held in the OLQAS Family Life Center in Ville Platte from 5:30-6:30 pm. They are free and open to everyone.
The talk was part of the Back-to-Basics Lecture Series. The next talk in the series will be Monday, March 13, when Fr. Taj Glodd will give his lecture on church architecture (which had been postponed from January).

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).
