LUTCHER – More than 80 residents of the River Parishes, including local political figures, gathered in Lutcher last Saturday for the 15th annual Family Prayer Breakfast.

Get High on Life, in conjunction with the Knights of Columbus Gramercy/Lutcher Coun   cil 1817, hosted the Feb. 1 breakfast. With the Super Bowl happening Sunday, the breakfast was billed as Super Bowl Saturday.

Harold Keller, founder of Get High on Life, said “the breakfast is held out of appreciation for the people in St. James Parish who have supported Get High on Life.”

Keller said the intention of the breakfast is to encourage men, women and children to become active members of God’s team and promote His Kingdom.

The breakfast began at 8 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus Home in Lutcher, with a breakfast cooked and served by the Knights of Columbus Gramercy/Lutcher Council 1817.

The program started off with a prayer and

the Pledge of  Alle       gi  ance. St. John the Bap   tist Parish Sheriff Office’s Lt. Michael Hoo ver and Danny Louque both sang various songs.
