BISHOP FABRE HONORED AS ONE OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR’S CATHOLICS OF THE YEAR

Story by Dr. Ansel Augustine

 

Proverbs 3:5-7 states: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart / on your own intelligence do not rely; / In all your ways be mindful of him, / and he will make straight your paths. / Do not be wise in your own eyes, / fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”

 

This Scripture passage perfectly summarizes the life and personality of Bishop Shelton Fabre of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, Louisiana. I have had the pleasure of knowing Bishop Fabre as a friend, mentor and supervisor when he became the auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of New Orleans in 2007. He was also best friends with my “Dad,” Father Michael Jacques, SSE, who served as our pastor at St. Peter Claver in New Orleans for almost 30 years until he died in 2013.

 

Since 2007, I have seen Bishop Fabre weather various personal challenges in his life, from deaths, tough diocesan decisions, chairing the anti-racism work of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and now rebuilding after Hurricane Ida. Throughout all these trials, I have witnessed a man so close to God that his faith has “moved mountains.” In fact, it is this faith that inspires those around him to grow closer to God as well.

 

This past August, Hurricane Ida devastated our region; although New Orleans was affected, we were nowhere near as distressed as Houma-Thibodaux, which is about 40 miles southwest of New Orleans. Here we are, several months later, and much of that area is still being rebuilt from scratch. It is in this reality that we witness Bishop Fabre submitting to the will of God to help the people he is called to shepherd. Not only has Bishop Fabre been in meetings with FEMA and other agencies to try to get help for his people, but he has also been in the trenches with the people serving. There is a popular picture that was run throughout the country of Bishop Fabre carrying a large bag of ice to help during the rebuilding process.

 

Bishop Fabre is a true witness to the goodness of God. He is very worthy to be included as one of Our Sunday Visitor’s Catholics of the Year. For as the Scripture states, his trust and submission to God’s will continues to help make the paths straight for all those he has been called to serve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BISHOP FABRE’S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE

 

Let us rejoice this Christmas in the birth of Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, who is “God With Us”!  God has indeed been with us as we have journeyed through great difficulties this year. Even with the challenges before us, may the hope of Christmas fill our hearts during the Christmas season and into the New Year!

 

Merry Christmas and blessings on your New Year!

Parish Communication Update Project

 
OUR LADY OF THE MOST HOLY Rosary is beginning an important and much needed Communication Update effort, and we need the help of everyone in our parish family! The last year has brought changes for so many of us. We want to serve and minister to you and your family in the best way possible and updating our communication details for every family is the best way to effectively accomplish this goal. Over the next couple of weeks all registered families will receive a letter with a personalized Communication Update Card in the mail from the parish. Please complete this card and bring it to Mass with you on May 15th and 16th for our Communication Update Weekend!
 

Catholic Charities Needs Assessment


In an effort to better serve the needs of the communities throughout our diocese, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux is conducting a needs assessment. This assessment will help us get a better picture of the unique needs of the people in your parish community so that we can develop programs and plan advocacy efforts that will have the greatest impact for the people we serve. By getting information directly from your parishioners, we are hoping to ensure that Catholic Charities is getting a better picture of the true needs that exist in our communities. We ask that you please consider sharing this assessment with your parishioners so that we can reach as many people as possible. Some ways to share this is by sharing our post on your parish Facebook page, distributing paper copies of the needs assessment in your parish, and forwarding the link to the online survey to your parishioners (see below). If your parish would like to distribute the paper version of the assessment, please contact me at nbourgeois@htdiocese.org or 985-876-0490 to let me know how many copies you will need. We have the paper survey available in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese (attached). Your help in getting this assessment out to the community will be a great step forward in helping us to truly become YOUR Catholic Charities.
