Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

LAKE CHARLES -- Bishop Glen John Provost has appointed a nine-member Pastor Advisory Committee to assist him in making a final decision about moving forward with a capital campaign in the Diocese to aid a number of projects, including creating increased endowments for seminarian education and priest retirement.

Pastors named include Monsignor James Gaddy of Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Church as Chair; Father Aubrey Guilbeau of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (Sulphur);  Father Keith Pellerin of St. Philip Neri Catholic Church (Kinder): Monsignor Ronald Groth of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church (Lake Arthur); Monsignor Daniel Torres of St. Henry Catholic Church (Lake Charles) and Vicar General; Father Edward Richard, M.S., of Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church (Sulphur); Father John Huckaby of St. Theodore Catholic Church (Moss Bluff); Father Alan Trouille of Our Lady of Seven Dolors Catholic Church (Welsh), and Father Timothy Goodly of St. Pius Catholic Church (Ragley). 

The group will also assist the Bishop, if the campaign goes forward, in determining its goal allocations. They will also help the Bishop set campaign policies and procedures and be Bishop Provost’s primary source for advice during the effort.
