SULPHUR –The Most Reverend Glen John Provost, Bishop of the Diocese of Lake Charles, will celebrate Religious Freedom with the celebration of the Holy Mass on Sunday, July 1, at 11 a.m. in Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church.
The Mass will conclude “Serving Others in God’s Love” Religious Freedom Week – June 22-29 – in the Diocese and across the United States. Religious Freedom Week begins on the Feast of Saints Thomas More and John Fisher – Friday, June 22.
According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, People of faith are committed to serving others in God’s love in healthcare, child welfare, migration and refugee resettlement, education, and more. Religious freedom protects the space in which we can continue to serve.
Bishop Provost, in conjunction with the bishops of the United States urges everyone to join Catholics across the country to pray and act for freedom to serve faithfully and with integrity.

Food and fellowship will follow the mass in the Father Egidio Vecchio Parish Hall with special musical entertainment beginning at 1 p.m. with The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys
The group, born in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains, springing to life with all the zest and zeal you’d expect from a 1940s-style Tennessee bluegrass band, has rambled far from home, touring throughout the United States and Europe. All are invited, according to Father Edward Richard, M.S., pastor of Our Lady of Prompt Succor.
