Dedication to a Great Friend


Seminarian Damian Zablocki took on the project of restoring the outdoor Marian statue as the community re-dedicated the refurbished “Our Lady of the Holy Eucharist” statue to Mrs. Maureen Poche who passed away a few years ago after battling cancer. Maureen was a great friend and supporter of NDS as a founding member of the Christmas Luncheon, a supporter of our development efforts, and a dedicated mother, wife, and leader in the Catholic Community of New Orleans. He husband Lee has since entered the seminary, preparing for a new vocation in life with the support of the archbishop, many priest friends, his family, and lay leaders of the archdiocese. Following Mass, the seminary community processed to the Courtyard where the refurbished “Our Lady of the Holy Eucharist” was blessed. May the Lord grant Maureen eternal rest and peace.
