Welcome to St Joseph Catholic Church

Rev. Jude Brunnert, M.S., Pastor


St Joseph Church

St Joseph Parish occupies the northwest corner of the Diocese of Lake Charles and is the largest in size of all the Diocese's 36 parishes, encompassing all of Beauregard Parish, except for the southern community of Ragley.  Geographically, St Joseph's has been on the periphery of the state's Catholic centers, first being ministered to by priests on horseback, then by train with the Chapel Car. (See the "About our Parish" for more information on our early church.) In 1938 St Joseph's was officially established as a Canonical Parish and entrusted to the Missionaries of LaSalette. It continued under the LaSalettes until the year 2000 when it became part of the Diocese of Lake Charles. Now 75 years later, our parish has grown to over 600 families and enrolls over 250 students in the Religious Education  It is served by a number of organizations. Find more information about those organizations under the Ministries Page.  St Joseph's has just completed an $800,000.00 renovation in 2011; the first since it was built in 1966. Through the faithful, generous fulfillment of pledges and donations of parishioners and the diligent efforts of Fr. Jude , the debt incurred by the renovation was paid off in March at the Jubilee Celebration.  Come see the beautiful renovation and experience our Spirit. 

Safe and Sacred Renewal and New Training is required before CCD starts in September.  All teachers, volunteers or anyone who has contact with minors are required to complete the training.

Hurricane Season begins June 1st


Mass to Avert Storms~ Friday, June 1st, 5:30pm at Our Lady Star of the Sea Shrine.  This day is also designated a Day of Prayer and Fasting 


Prayer for Safety in Hurricane Season

O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed Your order and returned to its former quietude.

You are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control: the Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster.

During this hurricane season we turn to You, O Loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with passing of time.

O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son on our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem, where a stormless eternity awaits us.  Amen

Composed by Most Rev. Maurice Scheznayder (1895-1981) Second Bishop of Lafayette (1956-1973), following Hurricane Audrey in 1957
