"Happy 15th Anniversary Bishop Provost - April 23, 2022"

When a grandmother celebrates her 90th birthday or a couple observes their 50th wedding anniversary, there is rarely just one celebration.   Family dinners are prepared, friends host parties, and visits are planned to the honorees.  The moment is too grand, the accomplishment too significant, the affection too deep to be contained in just one moment.   So, also, the Church celebrates Easter.

Bishop Glen John Provost celebrated the Mass of Chrism with the priests of the Diocese on Wednesday, April 13, in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.  At this Mass, customarily in Holy Week, the Bishop blessed the holy oils to be used throughout the year for sacramental celebrations in the Diocese of Lake Charles.  He addressed his homily to the priests and offered the following reflection:
