As Tropical Storm Cristobal approaches the Gulf Coast, Bishop Douglas Deshotel is urging clergy and lay faithful in the Diocese of Lafayette to take the necessary steps to stay safe.

Bishop Deshotel strongly recommends that all pastors in the civil parishes of St. Mary, Iberia, Vermilion and St. Martin consider canceling all morning Masses on Sunday, June 7, at their discretion.

Parishioners should check their church parish’s website and Facebook page, or call the parish to find out if scheduled Masses will occur.

Bishop Deshotel also directs that all Sunday afternoon Masses throughout the Diocese are to be canceled. The Chancery Offices at the Immaculata Center will be closed on Monday, June 8.

Parishioners in the Diocese are reminded that they continue to be dispensed from their Sunday Mass obligation due to COVID-19.
