Today. September 1, 2015 is the First, "World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation", designated by Pope Francis.
August DRE/CRE Support Group Meeting August 19th.
The theme for the year chosen by the staff in the Office of Evangelization is “Go Out to All Creation, bringing the goodness and kindness of God”. The question we now ask is how do we as Catechetical leaders and youth ministers meet this challenge. Three ways are “ Caring for Creation’, “Building Stronger Families”, and “Being merciful like the Father”. At the meeting, tables were set up offering resources on the following: Laudato Si’, (on Care for our Common Home), Pope Francis' Encyclical letter, World Meeting of Families, and the Jubilee Year of Mercy. These resources will be added to throughout the year. Guest speaker was Susan Hamilton, Director of Recycling, East Baton Rouge Parish who spoke on some practical ways we can do our part in ‘caring for our common home’.

UPDATE on Interim Certification Procedures
Due to the vacancy of the Certification Coordinator position in the Office of Evangelization & Catechesis, we have added Interim Certification Procedures. To help with this process we have added a tab on our website entitled CERTIFICATION. On Monday, August 17, 2015 this tab will be fully operational.
GO TO the top of the home page and move the cursor over the heading CERTIFICATION. This will open up the drop-down menu. Here you will find general information, both parish and school certification information, the 2015-2016 course schedule and registration instructions. If after reviewing you have questions, please call our office at 225-336-8760. You will then be directed to the staff member who can help you during this interim period.
