Bishop's Reflection

LAKE CHARLES – Bishop Glen John Provost celebrated the 2019 Heritage Day Mass in the Convent Chapel of Christus St. Patrick Hospital on Friday, March 15, the Friday of the First Week of Lent. Father Brian King, Pastoral Care Director for the hospital, and Father Charles Okorougo, hospital chaplain, concelebrated.

HISTORY: A Communion of Saints Not A Competition

In the summer of 2015 Xavier University of Louisiana, XULA, under the leadership of the university’s president, Dr. Norman Francis, hosted the very first “Symposium of the Saints”. It offered a lecture series married to a prayerful day of reflection on all the American sainthood candidates that are of African ancestry.  Dr. Pamela Franco, interim director of the Institute for Black Catholic Studies of XULA, facilitated the planning, offered live streaming and the published the proceedings of all lectures given at the event.

The radio broadcast of the 9:30 a.m. Mass each Sunday from the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception has been temporarily suspended due to the closure of the Cathedral and the restoration work being done in the structure. The airing of the Mass will return  on KLCL (1470-AM) and KJEF-AM (1290-AM) in Jennings as well as on Radio Maria 91.1 FM once the inside work has been completed
