Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

How can I repay the Lord for all the good done for me?”  Psalm 116:12

My dear People of God,

Having completed our pledges for Return to the Lord, I wish to express my gratitude for your open-hearted generosity in this endeavor providing for the future needs of the Diocese of Lake Charles. All of our parishes contributed.  Over fifty percent of them contributed over their goals.  Approximately 33 percent of all registered families participated.  Return to the Lord greatly exceeded our expectations.
