By a 54-45 vote, the United States Senate has rejected the Nelson-Hatch-Casey Amendment to health care legislation.

Cajun Dancing, Good Food & Catholic Fellowship

by Steve Ray on December 9, 2009

Today our Baton Rouge parish mission at St. Isidore’s is completed but we are staying long enough to join the parish social with Cajun dancing and great home cooked local Louisiana foods. This is great!

What a great bunch of faithful and orthodox Catholics. Fr. Fred Youngs has been wonderful! I love finding priests and parishes like this where we feel at home the minute we arrive. We just LOVE being Catholic.
