Easter Bunny visits The Inn!

Donna Rayburn and the staff of Acadian Ear, Nose and Throat Center in Lafayette collected Easter goodies for youngsters living at The Inn.

Twenty youngsters were thrilled with this surprise on Easter morning! 

THANK YOU Donna and Acadian ENT!

Register for Camp Hardtner 

Summer is right around the corner, and it’s not too late to sign your child up for an experience like no other at Louisiana’s premier Episcopal summer camp!

Selected as one of “America’s Best Summer Camps 2023” by Newsweek, Camp Hardtner isn’t just about games; it’s about making memories, finding joy, and discovering new things about yourself.

Campers will find an experience that will stick with them all year long and possibly for life. An experience of relationship, community, belonging, and self-worth–all built upon the foundation that God’s love surrounds us and transforms our lives.

As we move closer to the date of Convention and more information becomes available, we encourage you to stay informed on the latest updates by visiting the Convention Hub on the diocesan website.

Mark your calendars now: the Most Rev. Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, will visit our diocese September 20-22, 2024.

We are very excited Bishop Curry will be with us, and we will provide more details about his visit as they become available.
