Dear Website Visitors,
As pastor of St. Edmond Catholic Church in Lafayette, I welcome you to our website. I invite you to take the opportunity to browse around where you will get a wonderful introduction into our vast parish life. Our staff and many volunteers are the keys to the vibrant life of our parish. I am proud to have the privilege of serving the people of St. Edmond and shepherding them in their spiritual journey. Our parishioners are devout and generously share their time, talent and treasure to make St. Edmond a very special parish in the Diocese of Lafayette. I provide for you a small overview of what is happening in our parish and invite you to spend some time perusing our website to learn more. I also encourage our parishioners to check frequently the calendar for current events.
The spiritual life of our parish centers on opportunities for daily Mass Tuesdays through Fridays, weekend Masses with an outstanding music program, bible study opportunities and first Friday Eucharistic adoration. As you will discover going through the website there are many other opportunities for spiritual growth and development – as well as opportunities for volunteering your time and talent to the service of the parish.
As of September 1, 2016, we have enrolled our parish in FORMED -- a Catholic resource that is accessed on your computer. It opens you up to a whole world of Catholic information, movies, music, children programming, etc. If you go to our home page, all of the information that you need to access this program is there! Enjoy!
Continuing to ask God’s blessing upon our parish of St. Edmond and with my prayerful best wishes and love...
Fr. Gil Dutel,
