Lectures will be based on the the source materials of philosophy, the Bible, the Fathers, and the greater Scholastics. The purpose of this course is to grapple with nature and the activity of spiritual beings as far as possible based on the solid information available. A secondary purpose is to clear away the superstitions, silly notions, and dangerous practices that often plague any discussion of angels and demons. Some of the topics discussed will be the constitution of angelic spirits, angelic intellect and will, the angelic hierarchies, angelic and demonic activity, and the fall of the demons.

Spiritual Theology by Jordan Aumann, OP, will provide the principal material for the course.

Fiat Friday

Have you ever had a difficult mothering moment—one of those times when you truly didn't know what to do? Or a time when you cast a backward glance and wished you would have done things differently. By identifying struggles and applying virtuous antidotes, our mothering takes on a supernatural character that yields abundant fruit in the lives of our children, and ours as well. 

Filled with lighthearted illustrations, helpful insights, and practical aids, Raising Up Mommy will help you map out a spiritual fitness plan so you can overcome your weaknesses and grow in the virtues you most need to develop.

This event is at St. Peter's Parish in Covington. Cost is $20.

The St. Thomas More Knights of Columbus Council 5530 is conducting its 4th annual Sportsman's Raffle for 5 very nice firearms ranging from a beautiful CZ 20 ga. Over/Under shotgun, to the unique Ruger “Tiger Edition” 10/22 rifle, and the historic Model 92 "Trapper" lever-action carbine.

They’ll all be prized additions to anyone's collection, and every ticket makes you eligible to win all 5 of them because each winning ticket goes back into the hopper. If your ticket is drawn and you do not want to take the firearm, there is a $500 cash option. The cost per ticket is $25.

This is strictly limited to only 500 tickets of which only 50 remain. We’ll draw the winners’ names on Thursday, September 7th at a hamburger supper. Last year’s winners were ecstatic to hear the good news, and we hope that you’re among them this year!

The liturgy has been planned by the Marriage Celebration Planning Committee and Father Joseph Krafft, our celebrant and homilist. There will be five (5) priests concelebrating with him. 
Because of the generosity of a few anonymous donors we will have an organist, vocalist and trumpet player participating in this special celebration. With the assistance of Jay Zimmerman, Mass booklets have been prepared and will be distributed at the church.

Awareness of the following details will keep the event flowing and enjoyable for everyone:

⦁    The dress code will be sport coat or a suit for men and for ladies an outfit that you would wear to a wedding.

⦁    After the Mass we will all gather in front of the church for a group picture.

⦁    When we arrive at Ormond Plantation, 13786 River Road, Destrehan, LA  (0.8 of a mile upriver from church) the photographer will be in a designated location before the entrance to the dining area. Individual couple pictures will be taken with the couple holding an 8 x10 framed photograph of them on their wedding day. He will take a second picture of the couple without the wedding day picture. 

⦁    Each couple will receive a complimentary 5 x 7 color photograph of the group and of their individual picture taken with their wedding day photograph. Everyone will be sent an email within a week with a Dropbox of all pictures taken. Each couple will have the option to order additional prints directly from the professional lab at the photographer’s cost. 

⦁    Special tables will be in the reception area of the Pavilion for each couple to place their framed wedding day photograph.

⦁    Francis Giardina will set up music equipment to play Oldies music for dancing immediately after the luncheon.  
⦁    When entering the Ormond Plantation Pavilion an alphabetical chart will be posted with your Table Number listed next to your name. There are 15 tables; table numbers will be on each table. 

⦁    Lunch will be served at 1:00 p.m. Since your Entrée selection has been pre-selected you will only have to decide on salad dressing choice and tea, sodas and coffee, all of which are included in the cost of your meal. Ormond Plantation Pavilion is reserved for a maximum of three and one half hours from the time we arrive. Arriving there for 12:30 will give us a choice of ending between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m. 

⦁    A cash bar will be available at the following costs: House Wine $5/glass, Beer/$3 can, $4/ bottle, House Brand Cocktails $5. This will be a full bar so Call Brands will be available at market prices.

Movie Screening of "Outcasts" by the Diocese of Baton Rouge

The movie will be shows at the Catholic life Center, Main Auditorium in Baton Rouge (1800 S. Acadian Thrwy, Baton Rouge, 70808)

"A bold example of social justice in action."

Follow the cameras of Grassroots Films, the Award-Winning producers of "The Human Experience" and "Child 31" on an unexpected journey across the globe. Travel with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal to the prisons of Central America, walk the dark city streets of London, New York and Ireland's most treacherous neighborhoods as they attempt to affirm the dignity all those they encounter. Step beyond your comfort zone and into the lives of our modern day "outcasts."

Magnify Midnight & Run

Calling all young adults to join us for Magnify & Midnight Run 

Midnight Run (MNR) is an outreach concept being utilized throughout the United States in ministering to the homeless by way of food and fellowship. It is a great way to get involved and volunteer in your local community. In serving we are giving God gratitude for all of the many good things that he has done within our lives at Mater Dolorosa (1230 S. Carrollton Ave.)

6:30pm: Volunteers for MNR meet in Parish Center, located behind Mater Dolorosa, in order to assemble bag lunches with prayer cards, for the homeless.
7:00-8:00pm (Magnify): prayer and music led by young adults

8:00-till (MNR): we will coordinate a few vehicles to drive to St. Joseph’s Church near the Claiborne overpass, which is where we will distribute the food. We should be finished distributing all the bag lunches and return to Mater Dolorosa no later than 9:00pm. 


Volunteer Info: Sign-up below by Monday, June 19, before midnight. Another email will be sent out Tuesday, June 20 to all volunteers, requesting that each individual bring a specific type and quantity of food (ex: Lisa:1/2 pound of turkey, Brian: 1 loaf of bread, Jamal: a dozen juice boxes, etc..) with them to Mater Dolorosa Church on, June 21 at 6:30p.m. (If all you have time for is to bring food and help assemble the bag lunches, that’s perfectly fine).

If there are any questions please feel free to email any of the below listed MNR coordinators, and we will be happy to answer them.
