Parishioners from across the Diocese of Beaumont gathered Aug. 23 for the Bishop’s Faith Appeal Intentions Mass celebrated by Bishop Curtis Guillory, SVD, at St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica in Beaumont.
Representatives from parishes processed up to the altar with baskets of prayer intention cards to be placed in a large basket at the altar. The faithful have been filling out these cards throughout the year as part of the Bishop’s Faith Appeal.
In his homily, Bishop Guillory reminded the congregation that Jesus is the source of strength to do what is right.
The cards will be taken to Bishop Guillory’s chapel located in his home so that he may continue to pray for the intentions of the faithful.
