BLESSINGS ON THE BAYOU (June 22-26)
We're going on a local mission trip!! For the past 7 years St Philomena Catholic Church in Labadieville, La has hosted Blessings on the Bayou, a 5 day retreat experience for teens. This past June over 200 teens and adults encountered Christ within their community, themselves, and each other. They performed works of the hands and heart throughout Labadieville, Napoleonville, and Thibodaux. Make plans to join Divine Mercy LIFE TEEN this summer starting Wednesday, June 22, through Sunday June 26, 2016. Spaces are limited so register today to reserve your spot. Information and registration here.
