Embrace experience of giving

First — the extremely wealthy. There are probably a lot of extremely wealthy people who do not give anything to anybody, but I truly believe that very few of them are populating our parish. I prefer to look at the other side of that coin.

Area schools above water

More than 500 hurricane evacuees were attending parish public schools in September. Additional bus transportation, supplies, uniforms and temporary teachers have been necessary to accommodate the extra students.
