On January 24, the Order of St Lazarus’ Grand Commandery of the South (Grand Priory of America) observed the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity by gathering together with the congregation of St Mary’s Assumption Roman Catholic Church in New Orleans’ historic Lower Garden District. As our ecumenical Order is particularly interested in the realization of Christian unity, we use Unity Sunday each year to worship with a different Christian tradition.

Our visit to St Mary’s (one of New Orleans’ loveliest churches) was especially meaningful, as the pastor, the Rev. Richard Thibodeau CSsR, is also a chaplain of our Order.  After mass, we enjoyed lunch together at the Audubon Golf Club in New Orleans’ Audubon Park.
