As we prepare to celebrate the final completion of our church renovations with the consecration of our new altar this Thursday, let us give thanks to the Lord not only for a beautifully renovated church but also for the blessings of this parish. In 2018, the Diocese of Lafayette will celebrate the centennial of its founding. St. Bernard Church has contributed greatly to the Catholic history of South Louisiana. This parish has provided sacramental care as well as vocations to the priesthood and religious life for several generations. Perhaps most notably is the vocation of Bishop Jules Jeanmard, native of Breaux Bridge and first bishop of Lafayette. His saintly contributions to the Church of Lafayette were fostered right here in Breaux Bridge and at his home parish of St. Bernard. We have a rich history but these types of celebrations are not about dwelling in past, rather they give us an opportunity to look to the future. We look forward to the thousands of masses celebrated on this new altar.

The mass is always close to our hearts because it brings us Christ, our Savior, and they are so often offered for our sincerest intentions.  We look forward to the thousands of confessions, baptisms, and weddings to be celebrated in our newly renovated church. Let us give thanks to the Lord for the legacy of such a beautiful place to worship Him that we can pass on to many future generations to come. Please join us for this historic mass with Bishop Deshotel this Thursday at 6:30pm.

Fr. McIntyre
