LAKE CHARLES — More than 60 years ago, a priest saw a need to minister to people of the sea visiting the Port of Lake Charles. It was that love of welcoming a stranger, the love to care for those far from home that led to what is known today as the Stella Maris Seafarers Center in the Diocese of Lake Charles.

NEW ORLEANS — The 43rd session of the Institute for Black Catholic Studies (IBCS), a graduate theology program and school of pastoral ministry that meets each summer, will convene Sunday, June 26 through Friday, July 15, 2022.  After two years of online learning due to the pandemic, IBCS classes and Community Life will resume as usual on the campus of Xavier University of Louisiana, according to Dr. Kathleen Dorsey Bellow, director of the Institute.
