Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

Effective February 22, 2023, Ash Wednesday, Bishop Provost has appointed Jacob Troutman the new Chief of Recovery for the Diocese of Lake Charles. Until now Father Ruben Buller has served in that capacity.  

The Bishop stated:  “Father Buller has rendered excellent and indispensable service to the Diocese over the last two and a half years as Chief of Recovery.  During the initial stages of recovery, he offered expert guidance and oversight.   We owe him an enormous debt of gratitude.  With his new pastoral responsibilities, he wishes to dedicate more of his time and energies to the Cathedral Parish, while remaining, at my request, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia.   In addition to this, the Diocese of Lake Charles will soon complete three years of recovery and is moving into a new stage of development to reach its goals.”   Mr. Troutman will retain his position as Fiscal Director.
