Donor decision gives Carter life with new liver

Carter Bertrand: A normal boy, except for his new liver.

Everything seemed perfect and life was blissful as the Bertrands welcomed newly born Carter into their lives on April 16, 2011 at 12:37 a.m. weighing 7 lbs 7 oz.
In that moment, Carter Bertrand knew a mother’s love, a love that knows no bounds and continues to grow with each passing moment.
Two days later the couple was home with its new bundle of joy. This is Carter’s story, in his mother’s words:
Carter was jaundiced and our pediatrician had labs drawn from him the day after discharge.

Bishop's Easter Message

Bishop Jarrell

Diocese of Lafayette Bishop Michael Jarrell’s Easter message:
“The resurrection of Jesus has been called the crowning truth of the Christian faith. ‘If Christ is not risen,’ said St. Paul, ‘Our faith is in vain.’
“The annual commemoration of the Lord’s Resurrection is a time for joyful celebration, for family gatherings and for springtime festivals.
“ It is also a time for quiet reflection, for a prayer of thanksgiving to the God who made us, who loves us and who saves us.
