Are we making sure the laziness and heat of our NOLA summer is not stopping us from daily prayer, receiving the sacraments and even getting to Mass on Sunday?
The Ordination Mass is set for 10 am tomorrow morning at St. Louis Cathedral.

For NOLA Catholics, our city has had many special ties to Mother Mary for her constant protection in turbulent times throughout history. In fact, the patron(ness) of our entire state is Our Lady of Prompt Succor. You may have heard a saying to the effect of “Behind every great person, is a great mom.” This also can be said of our city! From individual prayer intercessions to the saving of the entire city in the 1815 Battle of New Orleans, Catholics in the Archdiocese of New Orleans hold Mother Mary close to their hearts.
