Message From Our Leaders

Message from Bishop Shelton Fabre

My dear friends in Christ,

Thank you for taking time to visit the Catholic Foundation of South Louisiana’s website.

When I first arrived to the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux as Bishop, I was encouraged to learn of the then newly established Catholic Foundation of South Louisiana. Having a vehicle where our parishioners are able to establish endowments that will benefit the various diocesan ministries, our parishes and our schools in perpetuity is a great benefit to the diocese.

Today the Foundation attracts a growing number of Catholics who want to share the blessings God has given them in a way that will make a lasting difference to the Church ministry they love. I am filled with great hope knowing that for generations to come the mission of The Catholic Foundation will continue to sustain and enhance the charitable, the educational and the spiritual ministries of our diocese. As the New Testament exhorts us in 1 Timothy 6:19 – “Thus will they build a secure foundation for the future, for receiving that life which is life indeed.”

I encourage you to take some time to browse this website to learn more about how you can support the Catholic Church through the Catholic Foundation of South Louisiana. As you prayerfully consider the legacy you wish to leave, please consider your own baptismal call to be part of the mission of Jesus Christ. In all things, we pray that God will bring to fulfillment the good work that has begun in us.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Bishop Shelton Fabre

Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux
