Search Your Heart Establishes Residence on Florida St.

The íÍSearch Your Heartíñ Discernment Community has established a residence on Florida Street in Baton Rouge.  íÍSearch Your Heartíñ is a discernment community created by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart for men who are considering a religious vocation.

While living in the íÍSearch Your Heartíñ community, members will be involved with tutoring at St. Paul Adult Learning Center, helping those working on their GED.  In the future, community members will have opportunities for tutoring middle school students, providing recreational activities and promoting self-discipline and responsibility. 

Brother Paul Montero, SC, James Burns and Brother Ray Hebert, SC will live in the community.  Brother Ray will also continue his full-time ministry at CHS.  Tu Pham, a 40 year old Vietnamese man, is the first resident of the íÍSearch Your Heartíñ community and will arrive in early September.

íÍThe Brothers are happy to provide this experience of discernment to help men considering religious life,íñ commented Brother Ray Hebert, SC. 

In early August, several volunteers joined together to assist in moving into the residence.  Offering assistance were CHS Sophomores Will Benoit and Nick Deranger, CHS Junior Tyler Chauncy as well as friends and relatives: Billy and Eric Morvant í´09, David Blanchard and Mike Schroeder.  Brother Xavier Werneth, SC and Jay Jackson í´71 helped with yard clean-up.
