Fr. Kevin will be offering three sessions of Lenten Reflection in the Rectory Chapel as part of a mini-retreat on three different Saturdays 9:30-10:45 a.m. Refreshed by Living Water: Living our Baptism daily – March 4 Restored by Faith: Eyes – March 18 Revived by Hope – April 1
On each Friday of Lent (except Good Friday) at 6:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Chapel on Jackson Avenue we will celebrate the Stations of the Cross, re-living, in a sense, the walk of Jesus as he suffered and died for each one of us.
We will once again offer this opportunity on three Tuesdays of Lent (March 7/14/21) from 6:00- 7:30 p.m. in the rectory conference room. You are invited to bring a dish to share and after all have gotten some food we will look at the next Sunday’s readings and offer each person an opportunity to share their insights into the readings.
In conjunction with the rest of the Archdiocese, Archbishop Aymond has mandated a special time for confession on Wednesday evenings (March 22, 29 and April 5) from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in all churches throughout the Archdiocese. Here at St. Alphonsus we will also extend the opportunity on Saturdays from 3:00 p.m. until Mass begins at 4:00 p.m.
The Jubilee Missionary Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help was displayed in St. Mary’s Assumption Church December 11-25, 2016. There were nine days of preached novenas, as Redemptorists Fr. Richard Thibodeau, Fr. Allan Weinert, Fr. Gerard LaPorte, Fr. Harry Grile, Fr. Maurice Nutt and Deacon Kevin Zubel continued to “make her known.”
Fourteen members of St. Alphonsus Parish, Grand Rapids, MI, visited St. Alphonsus Parish, New Orleans to engage in a mission trip. While here they assisted in painting, cleaning, installing a toilet, and spreading cheer to our senior citizens as well as many other members of our neighborhood. This is the second time a group has come down from St. Alphonsus and we are so grateful to have this partnership with another Redemptorist parish.
The parish has inaugurated its On Line Giving Program. This program will assist our parish members as well as those who are visiting to make regular or one time donations to our parish operation or to our ongoing building restoration needs. In a matter of minutes one can sign up on our web site and in a very planned way determine how they wish to financially assist their parish. The amount determined can always be re-visited as circumstances change. It’s especially helpful for the person who travels a lot on weekends and has this part of life predetermined.
