We are praying for our friends in East Louisiana! They were so faithful to us in the aftermath of Hurricanes Laura and Delta, and we surely want to do our part to support them! We are in conversation about how we can offer our resources for them. You can see some pictures here of the Directors from Houma Thibodeaux, Baton Rouge and New Orleans supporting us!
If you would like to donate to the Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Baton Rouge or Houma Thibodaux, where the eye of this Category 4 Hurricane went, you can go to: Catholic Charities Diocese of Baton Rouge Link or
If you want to drop off supplies to Catholic Catholic Charities here that we can bring to them in East Louisiana, you can bring us the following: tarps, roofing nails and 2 x 4s, mops, brooms, shockwave, paper towels, toilet paper, diapers, wipes, insect repellant, fans, dehumidifiers. These are the ONLY things we will be accepting. You can drop them off at 1225 2nd Street, Lake Charles, LA 70601 from 9am-3pm, Monday - Friday.
As we remember what we were going through last year at this time, we unite our hearts and prayers to all those impacted by Storms, and we pray Our Lady of Prompt Succor to protect everyone in the path of this storm and to minimize destruction of life and property, and to aid in the salvation souls.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us!

Prayer for the Recovery of the Diocese of Lake Charles
following Hurricane Laura

Heavenly Father, Who willed that the fallen hut of David be rebuilt; that Your people return from exile to repopulate their lands, rebuild Jerusalem and restore the Temple; that Your Son, Jesus Christ, would be the new temple and that He would build a new Jerusalem, firmly set on the twelve apostles of the Lamb; look, Gracious Creator, upon our devastation now in the Diocese of Lake Charles and along the coast; rouse up in the hearts of many good and faithful workers the courage, perseverance, and fortitude to bring Your task to a successful completion, where what is recovered will give Your name glory and be protected from the onslaught of the Devil; put to flight lethargy of spirit and fortify our wills so that the good works of Your faithful people will be seen as fulfilling Your work; grant us understanding, God of all light and reason, so that we will comprehend Your ways and see in every suffering and tribulation an occasion to embrace Your will and grow in love for You. Grant, loving Father, through that same Jesus Christ, our Lord, all these prayers by the intercession of Our Lady Star of the Sea, You, who live and reign in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.  Amen.

Bishop of Lake Charles
