St. Bernard Catholic Church Parish Staff

Fr. Garrett K. McIntyre

Rev. Garrett McIntyre

For the past six years, Fr. Kevin Bordelon has been the Director of the Office of Vocations and Seminarians. During this time, the number of seminarians has drastically increased and the number of men remaining in seminary and getting ordained has increased. This is no doubt due to Fr. Bordelon’s good work in the field of vocations and the countless prayers for more priests from the faithful of the Diocese of Lafayette. About a month ago, Bishop Deshotel made a new appointment in the vocations office. Fr. Bordelon remains the Director of Seminarians but Fr. Patrick Broussard, parochial vicar at the cathedral, has been appointed as Director of Vocations. A couple of weeks ago, the students from St. Bernard School had the opportunity to have mass celebrated by Fr. Broussard and he remained to speak with the older boys about priesthood after mass. The girls had the opportunity to learn more about vocations from Kaitlin Davis, a young woman in formation to be a Consecrated Virgin. Please continue to make vocations to the priesthood and religious life (especially from our parish) a regular part of your prayer. Please pray for Fr. Bordelon and Fr. Broussard in their specialized ministry in the work of making more priests. If you see them around, thank them for their work and let them know you are helping in the work of vocations by your prayers.
