At the recent Back-to-Basics lecture, guest speaker Fr. Bryce Sibley explored a theme underlying the problems with our culture’s devaluing of sex. More than 60 people listened to him discuss how Pope St. Paul VI’s encyclical, Humanae Vitae, will be a “failure” until we recover the sacred sense of sex.
To listen to his talk – and to look at the upcoming Back-to-Basics schedule, go to the main B-2-B page.
Fr. Sibley was parochial vicar here in Ville Platte at Sacred Heart Church about 15 years ago. He is currently the long-serving pastor at Our Lady of Wisdom on the campus of UL-Lafayette; and chaplain for the Ragin’ Cajun Catholics. You can follow Fr. Sibley and the Ragin’ Cajun Catholic on SoundCloud, Youtube, and Facebook.

The 2018-2019 Back-to-Basics season kicked off with great start recently, as Fr. Keith LaBove examined and explained Catholic moral teaching on end-of-life issues. More than 60 people braved the rain and inclement weather to learn from Fr. LaBove’s 30+ years of experience as a hospital chaplain. He is also pastor at St. Patrick Church in Lafayette.
