Houma actress nominated for Academy Award
Wallis is the youngest Oscar nominee ever. She has already won the Critics’ Choice Movie Award in Los Angeles. She told the audience there that "I would like to thank God for all my blessings." And if she wins the Academy Award, she undoubtedly will become a worldwide sensation.
It is wonderful for young newcomers who have no background in the field to be honored for such a grand award. To be so young and to have won such an honor and to be nominated for another certainly sets her out on a plateau by herself.
Whether "Beasts of the Southern Wild" wins best picture or she wins the best actress trophy should not reduce the honor and glory she and the movie have achieved. It obviously is a great movie and our loyal citizens of south Louisiana should go and see it.
The movie is now available for rent and purchase.
Holy Family gets
A new pastoral council has been installed at Holy Family Catholic Parish in Luling. Members took the oath of office at a mass last week.
Their mission is to deepen parishioners’ understanding and love of the Gospel, to recognize Christ in others and to follow the teachings of Christ in the daily lives of parishioners "through prayer, worship, service, sharing and loving."
Members of the new council are Chad Cheramie, Arlene Diaz, Deacon "G" Gautrau, Renette Hebert, Louis LeBlanc, Ted Paroda, Father John Perino, Norma Pilcher, Fran Petit, Sheila Plaisance, Dennis Tauzin, Lindsey Tullier and Dimitri Veltsos.
