 Father Paul Counce, the Judicial Vicar of the Diocese of Baton Rouge, who from 1979 to 1982 served as parochial vicar and then administrator of St. Theresa of Avila Parish, is celebrating the 40th anniversary of his ordination to the holy priesthood this year.  He will celebrate a special Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral (in downtown Baton Rouge), where he is now pastor, at 7pm on Friday. August 16, 2019.  Everyone is invited to attend the Mass and the reception following in the Cathedral Parish Hall.  Especially if you remember Father Paul, it would be wonderful for you to join him and his family and many of the priests of the diocese at this special celebration.
