Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

By Bishop Glen John Provost
The painting of St. Agatha, which now graces the narthex of the Cathedral, began its journey to us several years ago when Mr. Ronald L. McGinley contacted me to donate the historic work to the Diocese of Lake Charles.   The painting was part of the succession of Brent Wickliffe Fenet to her daughter, Brent Fenet McGinley, Mr. McGinley’s beloved wife.   The painting is donated in memory of Mrs. McGinley and her mother and enjoyed a long history in the Wickliffe family. 

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception reopened on Saturday, June 29, for the historic ordination of one priest and four transitional deacons. The work on the restoration began last year and the Cathedral had been closed for major interior work since January 2019. Below you will find links to images detailing some of the completed work as well as earlier images of the progress of restoration as provided by Father Rommel Tolentino and others.
