Father Richard Miles
...Father Richard Miles, pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Kenner, is a pastor of incredible belief, love and respect of the Catholic faith.He
captivates and enlightens his
parishioners in daily morning Mass, Tuesday night Novenas, and Saturday and Sunday Masses.
Having been "lost sheep" for over 20 years, my husband and I stumbled upon Our Lady of Perpetual Help
parish several months ago; since then, we've found ourselves figuratively wrapped in the spiritual welcome and understanding embrace of Father Miles
.Perhaps because Father Miles
is a convert to the Catholic faith himself, he
has an even stronger appreciation and understanding for those who have wandered off.
Father Miles reaches out to the congregation in an enlightening and captivating manner, leaving the congregation with a message that can be both appreciated and incorporated into our daily lives.He
celebrates the mystery of the Eucharist with belief, respect and devotion that is awe inspiring. Father Miles
gives of himself both emotionally and spiritually.He
is in tune with his
parishioners, cares about them as individuals, is interested in their personal successes and struggles, and guides them spiritually to seek comfort and understanding in Our Lord Jesus Christ.
In this time of media attention to priest scandal in the Catholic Church, I felt compelled to relay my positive experience in rediscovering the Catholic Church and that it is almost solely because of Father Richard Miles
.Thank you Father.
