LAKE CHARLES — Ashley Bratcher still gets emotional when she thinks about the possibility that she almost never had a chance to step foot on this earth. But God knew all along that He formed her in the womb to one day be the face of the pro-life world.

When Sister Miriam MacLean, RSM, was appointed Executive Director of Catholic Charities of Southwest Louisiana in 2018, she chose the motto, “God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.” (Psalm 9:18) 

She has taken this motto to heart by raising awareness that Catholic Charities exists to serve all five parishes of Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, and Jeff Davis in the Diocese of Lake Charles.
