Our thanks to Rev. & Mrs. William Banks and the members of Williams Memorial Temple CME Church for hosting the evening Ecumenical Worship Service
on September 17th, 2012.

located on Peabody Street, in Shreveport
Bishop Michael Duca preached the sermon. Among his sermon points, he noted that Conversion is a continuous part of our life, and that we must build our conversion on a solid rock - the the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He also noted that building a Church based on needs doesn't work. We must have Mission first, and then God will meet the needs in miraculous ways. He encouraged all to find new energy and hope to go out and proclaim the good news to all the world.

Thanks to all of our Worship Service Program Participants:

And thanks to all who contributed to the offering for the
Endowment Fund for Christian Unity.
Over $400.00 was raised!
And bright and early the next morning, (following a continental breakfast provided by Bishop Duca - thank you!!), we had our morning prayer service in the Chapel at the Catholic Diocesan Center.
Fr. Dan Krutz gave the meditation, with Madre Annie Bates officiating.
Additional note: Wedding bells will be in the air - Madre Bates plans to be married in November. Congratulations to she and Mr. Etheredge!!!
