St Joseph Parish

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 Program. 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.
