There will be a Young Ladies’ Sodality forming at St. Patrick’s. Young ladies (beginning at age 14 and until marriage or religious life) along with their mothers are invited to participate. The sodality will encourage devotion to Our Lord and Our Lady through prayer and the practice of virtue, as well as foster social graces and an appreciation of the arts among the young women of our parish family. Our initial meeting will be on Saturday, November 30th. Please contact Lori Templet at 985-308-0125 or email@example.com for more detailed information.
