A Life Worthy of God...

Nonco's heart and soul were inflamed with love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for His Blessed Mother, Mary.  

He reached beyond human endeavor in Christian witness, service and worship.  Quiet, humble, faithful to God and devoted to his Church, he inspired the young as well as the aged.

The ultimate objective of the Foundation is Beatification and Canonization of Auguste "Nonco" Pelafigue.  This will require that many put their hearts and their heads together to research and document Nonco's life.

The Foundation is committed to the building of a  Memorial Prayer Garden in the Arnaudville community to provide a peaceful and contemplative place for local citizens and for visitors to become educated about the life and legacy of Nonco.

In order to meet the objectives of the Foundation, it is essential that an historical archive be built of the documents, photographs and artifacts regarding Auguste "Nonco" Pelafigue , the Little Flower School, St. John Francis Regis Church and the League of the Sacred Heart.

A well-worn prayer found in one of Nonco's prayer books:

Breathe in me
O Holy Spirit
That my thoughts
may all be holy;

Act in me
O Holy Spirit
That my work, too,
may be holy;

Draw my heart
O Holy Spirit 
that I love but
what is holy;

Strengthen me
O Holy Spirit
To defend all
that is holy;

Guard me then
O Holy Spirit
That I always
May be holy;

St. Augustine
