Meet our Pastor

Rev. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

King David prayed in the Psalms:  “Unless the Lord build the house, in vain do the builders labor.”  (Ps. 127:1)  Well, we’re finally “under construction” here at Saint Bernard’s, and we humbly pray that the Good Lord will pick up a hardhat too.  There have already been some initial “snafus”—like the eighty-year-old church foundation that had to be shored up.  Some of the brick piers had toppled or sunk; in other spots the floor was just floating above the piers.  But all is very solid now, and we’re slowly “inching” upwards.

We’ve engaged local talent and years of experience to oversee the project, with Mr. Glenn Angelle as our architect and Mr. Joey Picard as our general contractor—and angels and a Joseph seem like a pretty good direction to go in.  But keep up your prayers for the continuance of all our deconstruction/construction and for the safety of all involved.  Work on the Adoration Chapel, too, is well underway, with insulation having been blown in and drywall installed.  It’s going to be a showplace and something to be immensely proud of, with God’s help.

Sadly, however, because of the extensiveness of the work involved, our initial estimated completion date of 11 June (Deacon—soon to be Father—Michael Richard’s ordination and First Holy Mass) is just no longer attainable, and we’re looking at mid-August for all to be finished.  That has also upset, as you can well imagine, a number of prospective brides and grooms, who have had to make alternative plans, and for that I’m really sorry.

While lacking a lot of elbow room, I hope the Borel Center is working out for you as a “church-away-from-church”, though I’m kind of  afraid that I’ll have to teach you how to kneel again once we’re back in the old/new place!  Really, friends, thanks for your patience and your generous spirits in the whole process.  Your smiles and goodwill are an inspiration to Fr. Webre and me, and it’s a delight to see what Christ the Divine Architect has already constructed in you all, who as St. Peter says:  “like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”  (1 Peter 2:5)  Amen!

Have a blessed week.
