LAKE CHARLES — The connection St. Francis de Sales has to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception dates all the way back to 1858 as the first Catholic church in Lake Charles — first as a mission, then later as a parish in 1869. Now, more than 160 years later, a statue serves as a visible reminder of that connection as the church’s first patron saint.

“Together for Life,” the marriage preparation day hosted by the Office of Family Life, announces a change in its schedule of classes. The May session originally scheduled for May 15 will be held on May 22. According to Beth Buller, Office of Family Life, there are still openings for sessions scheduled February 20, March 13, and April 17.

All marriage prep days are held on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with an hour lunch beginning at 11:00 a.m. The courses will be held via Zoom until further notice.
