Clean and Ready!

As we return to a little taste of normal by returning to Masses at St. Peter, you will notice how beautiful our Church grounds are. We are grateful to our volunteers (Garden Angels) who have been working so hard to get our Church grounds looking so good. They have been busy cutting the grass and shrubbery, planting new flowers, weeding the beds, pressure washing the sidewalks and Church, cleaning the Church, and disinfecting the pews. You may also notice that our cloistered walks have been freshly painted and the Church terrazzo floors have been freshly redone.

Our Garden Angels are a group of volunteers who donate their time weekly to cut the church lawn, weed the flower beds, plant trees and flowers, trim the shrubbery, edge the walkways and keep the property looking its best. They also do minor repairs as needed. We are always looking for volunteers to help continue this ministry. If you could donate some of your time to this ministry, please contact Deacon Boutte to add your name to the list. Without these volunteers, our Church would incur a huge lawn care expense. WE ARE GRATEFUL!

Our Church is Clean and Ready!

What is Natural Family Planning? (NFP)

Also called fertility awareness, Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a term used to naturally achieve or postpone pregnancy. These methods are based on observation of the naturally occurring signs and symptoms of the fertile and infertile phases of a woman's cycle. No drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used to postpone pregnancy. NFP reflects the dignity of the woman within the context of marriage and family life, promotes openness to life, and recognizes the value of the child. By respecting the love-giving and lifegiving natures of marriage, NFP can enrich the bond between husband and wife.

The Diocese of Lafayette currently has instructors trained in the following methods: Billings Ovulation Method, Creighton Model System and Sympto-Thermal Method. Please contact Kelly Chapman at the Diocese of Lafayette (337) 261-5653 to learn more or to register for learning a seminar on a particular method.
