The Donut Man

We have booked "The Donut Man" for a concert at St.Ann's at 2pm on Sunday October the 14th. Rob Evans is "The Donut Man" and he puts on a musical presentation for young children based on the theme:
- ' Life is like a Donut -- All of us have a hole in the middle of our heart, and only the love of God can fill that "Donut- Hole" 
Rob as many know has a show on EWTN called "MASSterpiece Donut Shop" and he will be at St.Ann's to perform for the youth and their families. This is an event our youth need Now...... More than Ever !
("The Donut Man" will also be at Our Lady of Divine Providence that same day, Sun Oct the 14th at 7pm.) Each event is 2 hours and our current goal will be to make these Free Events -- with a requested love offering for those attending. We will submit a new event request notice for the time frame of the "Our Lady of Divine Providence" event as well. For the moment, since this is our first communication to CCR, let me note that we will update this communication soon with a Facebook page entitled "Louisiana Donut Man" to direct people to more information about these events. We hope to have that FB page created within a week. 
Knights of Columbus Council #9347 (from OLDP) is sponsoring these events, but my husband John has asked that I be the contact person when the time is appropriate for speaking more about this - and i would be glad to speak for the event on the radio. That said, we will also reach out to Rob Evans to see when a good time for him to speak about this on your station too ! Thank you, Maria Eitmann

Las Posada: The Journey of the Wise Men

Screen Shot 2018-08-31 at 8.54.25 AM.png

Hear about their journey and why they brought gifts!  Then, follow the Shepherd in search of the Holy Family.

Las Posadas is a Mexican and Spanish tradition, and here at CSMPC it teaches the true meaning of Christmas. Children and adults accompany a Shepherd in his search for the Holy Family. The shepherd shares his story of the importance of finding the Christ Child and what the birth of this Child means for our future.

The shepherd leads the children around the Cypress Springs Mercedarian Prayer Center in search of the Holy Family. Upon reaching the “live” nativity, the children are given a brief lesson i.e. Is There Really A Santa?, Being a Lamb in the Flock, etc.

Appropriate for children of all ages.  No ticket required.  However, we ask you to call the center to reserve your space at 225-752-8480.
