Holy Rosary Parish Flood Update
HOLY ROSARY FLOOD 2016 UPDATE
It was with great joy in the midst of suffering that we returned to our beloved Holy Rosary Church this past weekend September 17th & 18th. The church has not yet started the rebuild but it was necessary that we return home and the many comments and emotions proved that the return was fruitful. The caution tape and barren sanctuary reflected the condition of the majority of homes in St. Amant and many shared with me the uncertainty of their own rebuilding- the waiting and not knowing- what will insurance or other sources cover? Instead of talking about the rebuild I think it important to let you know how we will reschedule events at Holy Rosary. Keep in mind that these are all tentative dates.
Baptisms are postponed till November 13th & 20th at 11 am mass. The corresponding seminar is scheduled for November 8th at the usual time. Call the office for details.
Wendy Enloe, DRE, will communicate Religious Education classes, First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation schedule to you soon.
After consultation with the staff, the fair chairpersons, and the Parish Council it was decided to proceed with having the parish fair October 27th thru 30th. The schedule has been modified to eliminate/change events that might be financially intrusive to families in our community. In fact we plan on giving ride bracelets to affected children with donations received from outside of our community. The fair committee shifted the focus away from fund raiser to community gathering. It will be an opportunity for all to step away from the tedious task of rebuilding for a moment and have a little fun and fellowship. Many from outside of our community have volunteered to work the fair. This is a good opportunity for outsiders to both do something for our community and come and see what it’s like in St. Amant after the flood.
Staff and knowledgeable parishioners continue to work to make sure that our resources are used wisely in the rebuild of the parish. I pray that all who are displaced will soon be able to return to their homes and life will return to a sense of normalcy. Too, I pray that all be graced with the presence and peace of Jesus, the source of all peace.
