Just for clarification, an email from our Bishop: (in case the letter is too small to read, the texts are below)
Fr. Mouton: I hereby provide the following statement regarding the discussion about a new church at St. Anne:
With regard to my statement in the Advocate, I wish to provide a clarification. I have not received an official request to build a new church. However, Father Jason Mouton did speak with me several weeks ago. He requested permission to form an exploratory committee and I agreed. I regret any confusion caused by my earlier statement, which was incomplete.
Bishop Michael Jarrell
Preliminary drawings of what the NEW St. Anne could look like as a TRADITIONAL Roman Catholic Church. We would now be able to accommodate 800+ seating, have a larger sacristy, cry room, bridal room, Narthex (gathering space), more restrooms, 2 confessionals, Baptistry and more. We would try to incorporate our current bell tower and as much of what we can of the contents into the project . Anyone wanting to see the larger prints are free to stop in the Parish Office during regular office hours to view them. Please note that these are ONLY PRELIMINARY drawings!! We will have meetings in the very near future to discuss, comments, ideas and changes you would like to see implemented into the new church. Please pray for this endeavor!

St. Anne would like to express a big THANK YOU to Paul Marty and to our Boy Scouts Troop #412 for their outstanding volunteer work in our Church Parish Hall. Over the weekend, the Scouts cleaned and painted the walls, door frames, trim and a/c vents. They are also working on replacing the rubber molding after the floors are waxed and some of our white boards in the classrooms. Again, thanks to Troop #412, their parents and other volunteers who donated their time to see this project through. Paul Marty completed this project as a final requirement in the Eagle Scout Rank. Congratulations Paul on a service project very well done!!

WE ARE IN NEED OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION TEACHERS:
We need your support. Our baptism calls us to share in Jesus’ ministry, to “go and make disciples”. Our Catholic Faith is a lifelong journey and by teaching we grow in our own faith and we deepen our relationship with Jesus.
Currently our 1st through 11th grade programs enroll 500+ students. We have historically offered a selection of sessions to help accommodate families and their varied schedules. Our Sessions options included class teachings lead by volunteer catechists here at our parish as well as a home study. Most families opt for the class teaching option as it offers a larger sense of peer community.
With this said, our class sessions require 60+ volunteers consisting of 40+ catechist, 10+ assistants, 10+pre-class duty and traffic helpers, and a number of others for snack and activity support. Our sessions’ volunteers consist of faithful adults in different stages of their lives.
We have grandparents such as Gail Romero, Audrey Vincent, JoAnn Doucet, Stan Bijeau; Parents who have children who have just completed or will soon complete the Sacrament of Confirmation such as Henriette Guillot, Carla Ballow, Celeste Pollitt; Parents who have children in various grades within our program such as Amy Ellis, Kim Langlanais, Erica Guidry; Young Adults such as Karl Simon just to name a few.
Historically volunteers have phased in and out annually in a relatively equal number however over the last few years the outgoing volunteers have greatly outnumbered the new incoming volunteers.
Please prayerfully consider joining our Religious Education Ministry as a volunteer. Contact Jessica Currier or Sandy Kilgore at (337) 856-8212 to sign up. Thank you for your attention and support.
