Bishop Fabre

Bishop Shelton J. Fabre and The Catholic Foundation of South Louisiana have announced the date of The Catholic Foundation's Second-Annual Dinner.

The event will be held on Oct. 10 at Nicholls State University's Cotillion Ballroom in Thibodaux.

The dinner will bring the local Catholic community together for an evening of fellowship in recognition of all who have contributed to the success of the Diocese and the Catholic Foundation's mission.

All proceeds for the dinner will benefit the Seminarian Education Endowment and Catholic Charities endowment.

The event will begin with cocktails at 6 p.m. in the evening and dinner to follow at 7.

The diocesan seminarians will be the guest waiters for the evening.

Tickets for the evening are $100 or a table of eight for $800 and they can be purchased through the Catholic Foundation of South Louisiana at or by calling (985) 850-3122.

“We are looking forward to hosting our second annual dinner as a way to gather our community together in thanksgiving for all of their generous support. Last year’s dinner was a huge success, where our parishioners came together to celebrate their generosity and faith. We are eager to host this event again with our seminarians as our guest waiters, taking the time to recognize and honor our parishioners across our diocese,” stated Bishop Fabre.

During the evening, Bishop Fabre will recognize one recipient of the Bishop's Faith in Action Award to a layperson or permanent deacon who models Christian stewardship and who has an outstanding record of volunteer service, high moral character and exemplary values.

Nominations are open and forms can be found online at
