Our Mission Statement
Centered on the Gospel of the Lord, we West Ouachita Catholics are a community committed to being a positive and life-giving presence to one another and to our world - a presence witnessed by our vibrant worship, our deep love for the poor, our heartfelt concern for the spiritual growth of Catholics of all ages, and our cordial welcome of everyone we meet. We are further committed to help each church member discover and develop their God-given talents for ministry, in the imitation of Jesus Christ.
The Herbal Harvest Festival will be the largest event hosted by St. Paschal Church in many years. We expect over 750 people to attend. There will be at least 50 vendors displaying their crafts.
It will take place on our church grounds on Saturday, October 25 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Our need for volunteers from the parish is great. If you are a member of St. Paschal Church, please look to how you can help out.
If you are not a member, please come to support this fun event, and invite your family, friends and neighbors to come over on October 25.
Fr. Frank Coens, OFM
