Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

When Sister Miriam MacLean, RSM, was appointed Executive Director of Catholic Charities of Southwest Louisiana in 2018, she chose the motto, “God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.” (Psalm 9:18) 

She has taken this motto to heart by raising awareness that Catholic Charities exists to serve all five parishes of Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, and Jeff Davis in the Diocese of Lake Charles.
