Ninth General Synod
Encountering Jesus, Witnessing with Joy

As a result of the work of the people of the Archdiocese and the Synod participants, over the next several years the Archdiocese of New Orleans & Ascension of Our Lord Catholic Church are committed to the priorities & goals outlined in the synod plan document.

We are dedicated to offering an atmosphere of hospitality and welcome to people of all backgrounds and cultures as the people of God. Opportunities are available in AOL Church Parish to develop a prayer life that will lead to a deeper embrace of Christ and to reflect upon one’s spiritual growth.
