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.
It's 2015! This entire year we are celebrating our 75th Anniversary as a parish. St. Paschal Church in West Monroe came into existence in 1940. Now, 75 years later, we are thriving more than ever.
We will have various celebrations this year commemorating our 75th. However, I want to make sure it's more than just celebrations among ourselves. Invite the Lord into those celebrations also. Don't forget to say a few prayers of thanks to God for all the blessings he has showered upon us.
God has been good to us. Let's not forget that!
Fr. Frank Coens, OFM
