Every Day, A New Chance to Shine Christ’s Light
As the Executive Director of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Houma-Thibodeaux, Louisiana, there’s no such thing as a “normal” day for Robert Gorman. You might find him working on a stewardship project to protect the region’s coastal wetlands. He might be visiting the Assisi Bridge House, the successful halfway house he helped develop for chemically dependent men. His projects are so diverse and yet so Christ-centered that Gorman’s presence can be felt in the daycare he helped save and heard in the stories of hurricane survivors. No matter where any given day takes him, Gorman’s strong faith has been a beacon of hope and an agent of change in the boot tip of Louisiana.
