Remember that fabulous welcome dinner your first night at Duchesne House? All of our welcome dinners are put together by members of the New Orleans extended Sacred Heart family including Associates and Children of Mary. Whether the time additional red beans and rice, Jambalaya, Gumbo or pasta, our students always have a delicious meal their first night with us. Tonight we welcomed them to Duchesne House along with various neighbors and community partners for a social, expressing our heartfelt gratitude for their service and generosity to our volunteers.
Thank you to everyone for their amazing support. We’re done for the summer and look forward to picking back up in September. In the meantime, here’s our newest visitor to the neighborhood:
“Henrietta” has been hanging out around our house. More than likely she was separated from her friends and seems about unsure of her surroundings. We have several flocks of free ranging “neighborhood” chickens. I will try and figure out how to catch her and get her back to one of the flocks a few blocks away. Stay tuned!
