Its official, The Diocese of Lafayette has granted us the approval to launch a parish Capital Campaign! All St. Peter Parishioners are invited and encouraged to join together in praying the prayer below for the success of our Capital Campaign as we move forward with addressing the needs of our parish. May God bless us and our endeavors as we strive to meet the current and future needs of St. Peter Parish all FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
HOLY FATHER’S PRAYER INTENTIONS
UNIVERSAL INTENTION: That, rejecting the culture of indifference, we may care for our neighbors who suffer, especially the sick and he poor.
FOR EVANGELIZATION: That Mary’s intercession may help Christians in secularized cultures to be ready to proclaim Jesus.
FATHER LEDOUX’S PRAYER INTENTIONS
WORSHIP: As Mary modeled absolute faith and trust in Jesus, the disciples learned from her what it meant to follow Jesus in suffering and death and likewise in Resurrected life. In this month of May dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, we entrust ourselves, as did the first Christians, to our Heavenly Mother’s direction and care.
FAITH FORMATION: During this month of May, may all parents of our parish recommit themselves, under Mary’s motherly care, to teaching their children the rosary and commit to praying as a family.
EVANGELIZATION: That we will genuinely ask our Blessed Mother to teach us how to better love her Son and share with others the joy of believing Him.
SOCIAL JUSTICE: While the U.S. Supreme Court deliberates important decisions regarding the sacredness of the institution of Marriage, may they be guided by the light of the Holy Spirit and convicted by the ‘new’ Eve, Mary, to uphold the dignity of marriage between a man and woman.
BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES: As we launch our Parish Capital Campaign for the renewing of our worship spaces, we ask Mary’s guidance and direction so that in all we do it may be for the Greater Glory of God.
Join fellow parishioners as we come together to meet the present and future needs of our parish of St. Peter! You need attend only ONE of the following training sessions to learn how you can be a part of this significant time in our St. Peter Parish history FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!

Heavenly Father, we come to You, united with
grateful hearts in praise and adoration for all the
gifts You have bestowed on us as the parish family of St. Peter. We trust in Your Divine Providence
and continued guidance for a successful capital
campaign. Trusting also in the infinite mercy of
Your Divine Son, we pray:
“O Jesus, grant that Your Sacrifice, the Holy Sacrifice of the Altar, may be the source and
model of our sacrificial offering. But in order that
our offering be ‘holy’ like yours on Calvary, it
must be invigorated, offered, and consumed by
love. O Jesus, give us a great love which will give
value to our offering and make it fruitful for the
glory of the Father, the triumph of the Church,
and the good of souls.” Amen.
