  • Uniting in Heart...

    As years pass, the story of the Church in the Diocese of Lafayette will unfold. In order for the Church to continue to thrive, it must return again and again to the founding story of Christ, which will correct how we live and pray. By sharing our hope in Christ and trusting in his power to unite and heal, Christianity will endure through the end of time. It is our mission and our duty to keep the light of Christ aflame. Let us now go forth, with the help of this plan, to both carry and pass that light on to future generations.
