St. Mary Church Local Pilgrimage

ADDITIONAL TRIP ADDED:   Bus Trip for Jubilee “Year of Mercy”
After “selling out” their Bus Trip in April, St. Mary Church, Lafayette, is offering an additional one-day Pilgrimage Bus Trip on Thursday, August 11, to visit Pilgrimage Sites in the Diocese of Lafayette designated by Bishop Michael Jarrell to reflect on the Father’s mercy and how we can emulate that mercy in our lives.  We will attend 7:00 a.m. Mass at St. Mary Church (419 Doucet Road, Lafayette), then depart at 7:45 a.m. from St. Mary parking lot, returning about 6:00-6:30 p.m.  We will visit, take tours and have our booklets stamped at the Carmelite Monastery; St. Martin de Tours Catholic Church, St. Martinville; Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church, Henderson; Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and St. Leo Catholic Church, Leonville; Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church, Opelousas; Our Mother of Mercy Catholic Church, Church Point; Our Mother of Mercy Catholic Church, Rayne; and Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Lafayette.  Each person will receive a booklet “Merciful Like the Father”; inside you will find the Prayer for the Year of Mercy which we will pray at every location, and we will have our booklets stamped at each site.  Lunch (included) will be at Little Big Cup in Arnaudville.  To secure a reservation, $70 registration is due to Barbara Thibodeaux by July 11.  For complete details and registration information, please contact JoAnn LeJune at St. Mary Church (981-3379) or Barbara Thibodeaux (235-3240).
