Students Help Save Crucifix

Campus Ministry Director, Lance Strother gathered a group of freshmen boys and their fathers to help save items from churches in Grand Chenier and Cameron that received significant damage from Hurricane Laura.

The group spent their Saturday helping communities in Vermilion and Cameron Parishes and stopped in Grand Chenier to help the neighbors and the nearby church of St. Eugene.

St. Eugene Church was filled with debris and mud from the storm surge brought in by Hurricane Laura.  Some of the Catholic church's artwork was spared from damage, including several statues and paintings.

In Cameron, the group was asked to save a large Italian-made crucifix at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic church.
