After Easter time, after Pentecost, we enter ordinary time according to the liturgy. Ordinary time does not mean trivial or without interest.
In this month of June, we hope to resume an increasingly normal, “ordinary” life.
Questions arise for our parish with the prospect of "new parishes" and "the Feast of the parish" that we must consider.
May the Spirit of Pentecost accompany us in this search and in the daily life of our lives!

Meeting on Wednesday June 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Maison de Tindoux in Sainte-Radegonde (The Hermenault parish hall is occupied by the school)
Following the questionnaire we received a number of responses.
We propose a “Parish Assembly” open to all to talk about it.
Saturday June 12 at 5 p.m. at the church of Nalliers
before mass which is at 6.30 p.m.
Among other open questions, that of the attachment of Nalliers to the parish of Luçon is asked.
We will talk about it at this assembly.
The Feast of the Parish is scheduled as every year on the last Sunday in September (September 26 this year). Last year, we were not able to have this parish feast for the reasons you know.
This year, what will be the sanitary measures required in an enclosed space like the Salle du Jarry to celebrate and have a meal? Difficult to commit.
Also at the last parish council, we made the decision to maintain the Parish Festival, but in the open air at the Château du Coudray in Sainte-Radegonde (Place of the old dog fair). With celebration and picnic from the basket. Patrice Richard has given his agreement to ensure the animation.
We will talk about this again at the next ward council and in early July - July 2 - we are planning an extended meeting with everyone who can get involved in the preparation.
The Hermenault parish hall has been occupied since May by the school which is under construction. This will be the case throughout the duration of the work. The two rooms upstairs can be used for meetings.
From July 26 to 30, 2021, the 7th edition of the diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes will take place, in the heart of your summer. After more than a year made very complicated by the pandemic, it is with great pleasure that we wish to relaunch our pilgrimage. We therefore suggest that you come together to bring all intentions to the feet of the Virgin Mary, so that she helps us to resume a normal life. The Sanctuary of Lourdes invites us this year to follow the theme: “I am the Immaculate Conception”.
All practical information: Registration from May 18 to June 11.

We all know the "Hail Mary", a universal prayer learned from childhood intended for the Virgin, but did you know that there was a similar one dedicated to Saint Joseph, her husband?
A simple and easy to remember prayer that offers a great opportunity to pray it daily in this year of Saint Joseph.
You whom divine grace has filled.
The savior rested in your arms and grew before your eyes.
You are blessed among all men and Jesus,
the divine child of your virgin wife is blessed.
Saint Joseph, given as father to the Son of God,
pray for us in our family, health and work concerns,
until our last days,
and deign to help us at the hour of our death.
