Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

The Diocese of Lake Charles issued a statement on Tuesday, May 3, in response to a Politico report that a leaked draft opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, suggests the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade — the 1973 landmark case that legalized abortion nationwide. The following statement, with approval from Bishop Provost, reads:

Forty Hours Devotion to the Blessed Sacrament — praying for an increase in vocations to the priesthood in the Diocese of Lake Charles — is scheduled at the Parishes of St. Peter the Apostle in Hackberry, St. Joseph in Vinton, Our Lady of LaSalette in DeQuincy, St. Pius X in Ragley, and St. Jospeh in DeRidder during the month of May. 

A commemorative edition of the Catholic Calendar was published in the American Press on April 23, 2022, as a tribute to the many accomplishments Bishop Glen John Provost has made since being installed as the third Bishop of the Diocese of Lake Charles on April 23, 2007.
