Dear Parishioners & friends of Holy Ghost Catholic Church,

Opelousas, Louisiana:

If you remember, last month I mentioned that I, along with the Creole Festival Committee, the Finance Committee, and the Parish Council officers would be meeting to discuss how we would handle this year’s Creole Festival. After much consideration surrounding the pandemic, it was determined that unfortunately, we will not have our festival as we had in the past. Our festival usually raises between $75,000 - $90,000 each year. This amount is generated from the sale of raffle tickets, food and drinks, from sponsorships, donations, and of course, the sacrifice and hard work we put into it. 

This year we are asking that each family prayerfully consider continuing to participate in our raffle by purchasing or selling 5 raffle books. We are also asking each person to donate $50 in lieu of the tickets you might have purchased at the festival or the donation you might have made.  Raffle tickets will be available beginning next weekend and at the Parish Office at the regular office hours.

 

Funds raised will be used to pay our insurance for the year, which is $75,000. Any remainder will be used for daily operations of the church and any other needed maintenance. 

 

Let us pray through the intercession of St. Joseph whom our diocese honors this year in a very special way through the celebration of the year of St. Joseph that God in His abundance blesses this effort and brings it to fruition. 

 

Thank you in advance for your continued support!

 

Sincerely yours,

 

Lambert A. Lein, SVD
