Notice of Postponement of our Virtual Bicentennial Celebration
Dear Members of our Extended Family,
We regret to inform you that we need to postpone our virtual celebration of the Bicentennial of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart from Thursday, September 30, 2021, until Tuesday, January 11, 2022 (another significant date – the 175th anniversary of the arrival of the Brothers in the United States). Complications from the spike in COVID cases from the Delta variant, the impact of and subsequent complications from hurricane Ida on the Province Office, our families and Partners in Mission and our local vendors in the southern Louisiana as well as greater challenges like worker shortages, delivery delays, and supply issues for our celebration materials, make it impossible to meet our deadlines and prepare a worthy celebration. We have tried, and we’re sorry about adding yet one more postponement to your calendar. We hate to disappoint, but we hope you understand. This will make our time together on January 11 even sweeter.
Given our postponement, we have made three other decisions:
- Orders for cheese packages will continue to be taken through Monday, November 1, 2021.
- Requests for wine and orders for cheese boards only will continue to be taken through Wednesday, December 1, 2021.
- If you would like to cancel your order and request a refund, please contact the Province Office (UnitedStatesProvince@gmail.com or 504-913-005).
We hope you can celebrate in some way wherever you might be on Thursday, September 30, and we hope and pray that you will make plans to join us on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, for our virtual celebration.
Until then, thanks for your understanding, and Happy Foundation Day!
In His Heart,
