Rosaries. Holy Water. Votive Candles. Holy Medals. Everyone uses them, but do we understand their true importance in our spiritual lives.
The Church calls them Sacramentals, and they help to prepare us to receive grace. Join us Monday, Feb. 10, as Fr. Matthew Barzare teaches us about “Sacramentals: What they are; and why they’re important”.
The free talk starts at 5:30 pm at the Our Lady Queen of All Saints Family Life Center (1220 W. Dardeau St., Ville Platte). Everyone is invited.
With the start of a New Year, people often make resolutions for improvements in their lives. Sometimes, however, the resolutions don’t last.
Emily Byers, one of the two consecrated virgins in our diocese, recently gave our Back-to-Basics talk on how to make Holy Resolutions for the New Year. She also gave practical advice for making the resolutions. Click the player below to listen to her talk.
