St. Francis de Sales lived his life doing seemingly ordinary things in extraordinary ways. This was the means of his sainthood.

In this very same spirit, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest will establish St. Francis de Sales Oratory in the Diocese of Lake Charles.

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Lake Charles has been a symbol of resilience and faith over the past 150 years, rising above the destruction of hurricanes and ashes early on.

Fraternus, a national organization that has been mentoring boys into virtuous Catholic men for over 10 years, has formed a local chapter in the Diocese of Lake Charles. Although it goes into high school and beyond, Fraternus membership begins in the fifth grade because it is in those years that mentoring becomes necessary.
