The dioce'se Office of Justice & Peace will host its annual Mass for Survivors of Violence, with Bishop J. Douglas Deshotel as celebrant. All are invited to the Mass and the reception that follows.
Violence hits all communities, all income and age groups, and it also tests our faith.
We have a responsibility to respond. Acadiana has had its share of violence, domestic abuse, serial killings, stabbings, and the list goes on. Please help us reach out to those individuals and families who have experienced the pain and hurt of losing a love one through a violent act.
The Catholic community cannot ignore the moral and human costs of so much violence in our mist.
Call the Office of Justice and Peace at 337-261-5545 for more information or to make a referral for someone to receive a personal invitation.
