Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

“Bishop Provost contacted the Diocese of Lafayette and personally offered his condolences and thoughts to the victims and their families, as well as all involved in this tragic event at a local movie theater.   The Bishop added, ‘The faithful of our Diocese stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Lafayette, extending our support and prayers.   May our faith be strengthened at this time of trial.’”  

In the U.S. Supreme Court case, Obergefell v. Hodges, the opinion of the five-member majority creates the legal right of two persons of the same gender to marry one another. At the same time, the opinion states, “[I]t must be emphasized that religions, and those who adhere to religious doctrines, may continue to advocate with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine precepts, same-sex marriage should not be condoned.”
