Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

December 2, 2018
First Sunday of Advent

My Dear People of God,

In Southwest Louisiana we are  not  strangers to dangerous situations. We have faced hurricanes and the  catastrophes they bring with perseverance and courage.     Should we  not  face  accompanying challenges in  the Church with the same determination?  With  God's help we certainly can.

LAKE CHARLES -- Earlier in November, the Diocese of Lake Charles was audited for its compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. Bishop Glen John Provost has announced “that this most favorable audit report from Stonebridge states that the Diocese of Lake Charles is in compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People and is a further testimony to our continuing efforts to insure the safety of our children and youth.” 

A statement from Bishop Glen John Provost:

The news of Saturday’s attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is shocking and distressing. What was intended to be a celebration of faith and new life devolved into terror and violence. We again denounce all forms of racial prejudice and violence. The menace of Anti-Semitism must be rooted out in all of its forms.

We stand in solidarity with our Jewish brothers and sisters as we commend to Our Heavenly Father the lives of the eleven people killed in the attack. We pray, too, for the first responders and all those who rendered aid. May God be with them and their families in their sorrow.
