Jazz Brunch 2020

“God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”

1 John 4:16

        Catholic Charities of Southwest Louisiana is happy to continue hosting the annual Jazz Brunch on April 26th, 2020 at the Lake Charles Country Club.  There will be entertainment, delicious food, good company, and last but not least, the famous Jazz Brunch Silent Auction, which is set to include a variety of exciting items available to bid on.  Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted as payment for winning the auction bids.  The proceeds will go to further assist our efforts as an organization that reflects charity and mercy to those who need the helping hands of a good neighbor in our less fortunate communities.  Catholic Charities of SWLA is known for aiding families and individuals in a variety of ways. This includes helping those who are in danger of becoming homeless by offering rental, mortgage, transportation, or utility assistance.  Funeral and prescription assistance is also another service offered to our less fortunate brother and sisters.  The biggest and quite possibly the most well-known service provided by Catholic Charities is our food distribution pantries which are dedicated to serving the poor through our regions.  We look forward to continuing to serve the poor as the year goes on and we hope to increase our efforts each year and to always remember the love God has for us.

May 1st, is the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker! We, at Catholic Charities have very much to be grateful for. We prayed for many months for a refrigerated truck and also for the success of the Jazz Brunch, and Saint Joseph has provided both. Join us in our prayer of thanksgiving and also for the continued spiritual and temporal needs of Catholic Charities, those we serve and our benefactors. 

 Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
O Saint Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most Loving of Fathers.
O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss his fine head for me and ask him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath.
Saint Joseph, Patron of departed souls – pray for me. Amen.

This prayer was found in the fiftieth year of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
