20161212_173215-v2

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).

Fr. Glodd Discusses Purgatory and Indulgences

?

Fr. Taj Glodd informed and entertained nearly 100 people at the November Back-to-Basics lecture. During the Month of the Holy Souls in Purgatory, Sacred Heart’s parochial vicar discussed Purgatory and Indulgences.

To listen to Fr. Glodd’s lecture, click 

To learn more about Indulgences, visit the Vatican’s website on “The Gift of the Indulgence“. Be sure to read the conditions (paragraphs 4 & 5), and learn ways to gain indulgences.

One of the ways to gain an indulgence is to read Sacred Scripture. Thirty minutes of reading the Bible can gain a plenary (full) indulgence; otherwise, a partial indulgence can be gained. A great New Year’s resolution would be to read the Bible in one year. For some 1-year reading plans, click here.
