A Message From Archbishop Aymond

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

While the 2013 Super Bowl coming to New Orleans provides many great opportunities for the city and its citizens it also provides opportunities for those who exploit others through human trafficking. We must all do whatever we can to combat this evil especially as we host the Super Bowl. Copies of my December 5, 2012 letter on this subject have been reproduced and are available in the vestibule of the church. Please take a copy, or as many as needed, when you leave.
