The Diocese of Lake Charles celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Apostleship of the Sea (AOS) on Saturday, October 3, 2020. The day began with the Holy Mass in honor of Our Lady at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, celebrated by His Excellency, The Most Reverend Glen John Provost, D.D., M.A., Bishop of Lake Charles. Deacon Patrick LaPoint, Director of Stella Maris Seafarers Center; and Father Rommel Tolentino, Port Chaplain for the Diocese of Lake Charles, assisted at the Mass, along with other clergy of the Diocese. The Mass was followed by a Marian and Eucharistic Procession to the Lake Charles Civic Center Seawall, where Adoration and Benediction took place. It was a beautiful tribute to the Patroness of the Apostleship of the Sea, and Our Lady Star of the Sea (Stella Maris).
