LAKE CHARLES — Tickets are on sale now for Veritas! This year's theme is "The Life of Virtue" featuring keynote speaker Father Aquinas Guilbeau, OP, a native of Louisiana and current Vice President of Mission and Ministry for the Catholic University of America. His namesake, St. Thomas Aquinas, wrote extensively and insightfully on the concept of human nature and the virtues.

Jesus Christ did not come to be served but to serve. This act of humility was on full display as members of the Hispanic Community at St. Henry Catholic Church washed the feet of Perpetual Pilgrims on the St. Juan Diego Route of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage passing through the Diocese of Lake Charles on June 4.
