Our hearts are heavy...

With great sadness, we are writing to let you know that one of our staff members, Anetra Terry, passed away last Wednesday night. Anetra worked with Lafayette Catholic Service Centers for the past five years as the case manager of Msgr. Sigur Center and Bishop O’Donnell Transitional Housing. She was a remarkable woman who served the poor with great care and compassion. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.


The services for Anetra will be on Thursday, September 12th at Spirit of Liberty Church, which is located at 2841 Louisiana Avenue. The visitation will be from 7:00AM-10:00AM and funeral at 10:00AM.

Please join us in praying for her friends and family during this difficult time.
