Traditions in the Kitchen
Christmas Eve Gumbo
Elizabeth Reau and Shirley Cormier from the Diocese of Lafayette sat down with us to share their gumbo recipe and explain the importance of this dish in their Catholic faith and Christmas traditions.
In Louisiana, many families celebrate Christmas with a Réveillon, or festive feast after returning home from midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. The name of this celebration comes from the French word “réveil,” or “awakening.”
Sunday, November 1st at 9AM EST
HOPE – As we celebrate the feasts of All Saints and All Souls, please join us for a Mass of hope and remembrance for our departed loved ones.
Discover how this feast day is connected to the Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos. Together we take a virtual visit to the Diocese of El Paso to learn more.

THANKSGIVING – On Thanksgiving Day, we will stream an online Mass of thanksgiving for God’s blessings and infinite grace.

Join us for a Christmas concert with special performances by Father Jack Wall & talented musical artists from across Catholic Extension supported dioceses.
In addition to these Masses, we invite you to journey with us across the country during Thanksgiving and Advent. American Catholicism is rich in culture and tradition.
We share common faith, but celebrate in unique and meaningful ways. Walk with us as we explore food, music, and customs that bring the holiday season to life for the faithful across our country.
