The Weekly Word at St. Benilde 4.28.21
In compliance with Governor John Bel Edwards and Jefferson Parish's subsequent decision made yesterday, April 27, to amend the statewide mask mandate,
masks will no longer be required at parish liturgies and functions effective immediately.
Parishioners are, of course, welcome to continue wearing masks if that is their preference. We continue to encourage people to practice frequent hand washing/sanitization and will also maintain the socially distanced righthand center (facing the altar) section of the church.
masks will continue to be required at all St. Benilde School functions in accordance with the revised mandate.
There will be a May Crowning during the 11 AM Mass on Sunday, May 2, honoring our Blessed Mother.

The St. Benilde Meal Ministry
exists to provide meals for families/individuals in need. Typically this lasts for three weeks on alternate days, though the period will occasionally be extended or shortened depending on the particular need. All coordination is started by email and a web-based scheduling tool (mealtrain.com) is used to organize ministry volunteer sign up. The meals ministry coordinators will send out an email with the details of the need, including a link to the online scheduling tool and any special dietary needs. Ministry members can then choose to sign up and deliver either a home-cooked or store-bought meal.
To request a meal for yourself or someone in need, please contact ministry coordinators Kathryn Howard at email@example.com and Audrey Huck at
. You can join the Meal Ministry by clicking the green button.
The Divine Mercy Cenacle Group
is an adult faith formation opportunity that consists of songs, prayers, and discussion on Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the writings found in the Diary of St. Maria Faustina. As a small Christian community, members have the opportunity for spiritual growth and a deeper understanding of our merciful Lord.
Meetings take place on the second and fourth Thursday of each month and are held in the St. Benilde Parish Office Meeting room. For more information, please contact Val Hebert at firstname.lastname@example.org or 504-427-0327. All are welcome!
