Parish Mission Statement


St. Angela Merici Parish is a family bound together by a common faith.  We are ever faithful to the Catholic Church and its teachings, revealed to us by Christ, and to the Magisterium (the Pope and the Bishops).  Our Parish family is part of the larger family of the Archdiocese of New Orleans.  We are enriched by our different backgrounds, talents and abilities.

In union with the Bishops and the universal Church, and guided by the Holy Spirit, we proclaim our Christianity and our call to live Christ's message and keep Him central in our lives.  We come together in worship and service,unique yet the same, all members of Christ's mystical body.

As members of His body, our mission is to worship God; serve our Parish, the Archdiocese, and the universal Church; serve those who need us; enrich each other with our prayers and love; provide religious education; and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Parish Goals

  • Have the Pastoral Council work with each parish organization to enable them to act on their “faith based” mission statements.
  • Promote greater involvement by youth, teens and young adults in parish liturgies by twenty percent.
  • Increase attendance of youth and teens by ten percent at weekend Masses and special liturgies.
  • Communicate technological resources for spiritual development.
  • Integrate “young adults” (ages 18-40) more fully into parish life and ministries.
  • Develop and implement a plan for the June 2013-June 2014 celebration of the parish’s commemoration of the 50th Anniversary
  • Formulate and undertake a process that begins the implementation of the master plan.
  • Improve and maintain the appearance of the physical facilities so that it creates a great “First Impression” for visitors and parishioners.
