When a visiting missionary priest from Nigeria spoke at Holy Family Church in Luling last weekend, he told about bombings at his church that killed the priest. He blamed it on terrorist Al Qaeda groups. This made me wonder how people are raised to go out and do this sort of thing – the same sort of thing that the killings in New Orleans seem to replicate more and more. And how about the redheaded joker who took lives in Colorado at the movie theater? What causes people to be this way?
Holy Family Catholic Church on Lakewood Drive has an Extravaganza once a year as its special fundraiser. Instead of a parish fair, volunteers get together and put on a one night benefit that ensures one of the ticket holders to get $10,000 and others to share in smaller pots. In addition there were games with a television set and ipods as prizes and lots more raffle drawing and teacup auction items.
