Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

No matter what side of the abortion issue you are on — pro-life or pro-choice — one thing is certain. The life of a child is lost every single time. Whether the abortion took place last week, last year or even 30 years ago, Marjorie Long wants people to know something else that is certain: forgiveness and healing through a Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat.

The Most Reverend Glen John Provost, Bishop of Lake Charles, has announced the receipt of a sizeable legacy, perhaps the largest contribution ever made to the Diocese of Lake Charles, from the estate of Elizabeth Singletary Richard and her late husband, Leslie R., both longtime residents of Cameron Parish.

His Excellency, The Most Reverend Glen John Provost, Bishop of Lake Charles, ordained four men to the priesthood for the Diocese of Lake Charles on Saturday, June 27, in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The four are the Reverend Samuel Bond, the Reverend Joseph Caraway, the Reverend Andrew DeRouen, and the Reverend Levi Thompson. Additionally, Bishop Provost ordained the Reverend Mr. Michael Beverung as a transitional deacon, the penultimate step to ordination to the priesthood. Bishop Provost's homily follows.
