Diocese of Lake Charles

The entire five-parish region of the Diocese of Lake Charles was impacted by Hurricane Laura’s brutal wrath of destruction as the Category 4 storm made landfall along the Gulf Coast in the early morning hours of August 27. But through it all, His Excellency, Bishop Glen John Provost never left the Diocese.

NOTRE DAME, Ind. — Family is the focus of the next multimedia Ave Explores series — Ave Explores: Catholic Family Life — hosted by Katie Prejean McGrady of Lake Charles.
