A Letter From Our Pastor
Praised be Jesus Christ!
Dear friends, welcome to our website! I am glad that you have stopped by to see what we are all about. The Catholic Church has been present in Jennings County since the early 1840’s, and continues to this day to spread the good news of Jesus Christ – the message of His love, mercy, and friendship. If you take a look at our crest, you will see that each parish is distinct, while all three are connected by and centered on the Eucharist. The fathers of the Second Vatican Council reminded us that the Eucharist is the source and summit of our Catholic faith – this is the driving force behind who we are and what we do. We receive the Body and Blood of Christ, so that we might be changed and transformed by Him, and then take Him into the world. The mission of the Church in Jennings County is to tell the story of Jesus, and hopefully invite others into relationship with him. Take some time and browse the website, and see if we have something to offer you. I bet that we do! Thanks for visiting!
May God bless you, and Our Lady watch over you!
Fr. Jerry Byrd, Pastor
