LAKE CHARLES — Something Bishop Glen John Provost enjoys most about visiting Catholic schools are the students. On January 31, 2024, many students in the Diocese of Lake Charles had the chance to visit him in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception for a special Mass to celebrate the 50th year of National Catholic Schools Week.

Seniors from St. Louis Catholic High School and eighth-grade students from the other five Catholic schools in the Diocese gathered to celebrate the gift of their faith-based learning. The Mass coincided with the Memorial of St. John Bosco, a champion for the education of Catholic youth.
