We believe that Jesus Christ came to reveal the fullness of God's love for us, and we continue to celebrate that love through praise, sacraments, service, and community.
Saint Basil parish offers multiple ministry opportunities. Whether you'd like to learn more, pray more, or serve more, we have a ministry for you.
Making an offering of our financial resources is an integral part of what it means to be a Christian. We have a variety of ways to make it easy for you to support our church.

July 3 Update:
Dear St. Basil Church Community,
We all know that the news is not good about the virus as it continues to spread and the curve is rising again. Along with that happening, Governor Edwards has kept us in Phase 2. I continue to my very best to stay safe in these days. I wear a mask when I go to the store or have to go out and especially if I cannot socially distance myself. I continue to say Mass each day in your Church and look forward to the day when others can come to daily Mass and weekend Masses in the Church itself. Until then weather permitting we can use Judice Park for an 8:00AM and 10:00AM Sunday morning schedule. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for Bo Cormier and Corey & Valarie Guidry from the Southwest Athletic Association for their assistance in the use of the Park. They allow us to keep all of our supplies inside the concession stand. The only thing I need to transport is my Mass kit which has the wine, hosts, chalice, ciboriums and the like. So if you know them and see them, please add your words of thanks because they are going out of their way to assist us.
CCD PROGRAM: Cindy Richardson, the CCD Coordinator, is doing a mail out to alert those who haven’t yet registered for this coming year’s program how to do so. It is done by downloading and filling out the forms off St. Basil’s website: stbasiljudice.org, and then mailing to the church office. The virus stay-at-home prevented registration from happening in the Spring. Though some have registered, there are many more that need to do so. But we are confident those who will need to register will do so. What the CCD program will look like is still uncertain. The children attending their schools will have a different way of doing things and I’d imagine there will be certain protocols we will need to follow to keep our children safe here as well. Cindy will make sure all our families with children in the CCD program will have that information.
Parish Secretary: Susan Laborde started her position as parish secretary on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. She is getting oriented and becoming familiar with the parish office.
Parking Lot: I did not get an update this week from JB Mouton, but a lot of work was done on the parking lot this past week. The bulldozer graded out a lot of the dirt. All the different piles are now gone and the imaging of what it will be looking like can take place. The ditch has been filled in with dirt and graded even with the rest of the parking lot. It’s just dirt, but it looks good. The pile of dirt closest to the rectory is top soil to be used in the landscaping. They did pile up another mound of dirt closer to the chain link fence. Not sure of its future use. If you’ve been watching the weather forecasts, we are approaching another wet spell.
As I have been doing, I’ll email you again Sunday morning to let you know if the weather will cooperate long enough for us to have Mass in the Park. The bleachers have been moved out from the covered areas into the grass to assist in social distancing during baseball games. So it is even more important for you to bring a lawn chair as that seating is not available any more. It does free up space for chairs under the covered areas.
Happy 4th of July everyone. Have a great and safe weekend.
