LAKE CHARLES — There’s nothing like a parade filled with family and friends to cure the COVID-19 quarantine blues.

In concurrence with the recent announcement made by Governor John Bel Edwards that school buildings are officially closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, students in Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Lake Charles will not be returning to their classrooms this school year. As approved by Bishop Glen John Provost and Superintendent Kimberlee Gazzolo, distance learning will continue for students through Friday, May 15.

MOSS BLUFF — Due to the continued restrictions in place while trying to contain the Coronavirus pandemic, the resumption of programs at Saint Charles Center is being assessed on a day-to-day basis and will be adjusted accordingly, the Reverend Whitney Miller, Ph.D., L.P.C., director of the center has said.
