Welcome to

St. Joseph's Catholic Church - Galliano, LA

Our community is blessed with a beautiful and bountiful environment in the South Lafourche area. Our church parish is one of many belonging to the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux. Once inside the church, we are greeted with a wooden sign reminding us of the community’s Cajun French heritage. It says “Je suis le Chemin, la Verite, et la Vie.” This translates to “I am the Way, the Truth, and The Life”. The Mission of St. Joseph's Parish is to be a loving community of people, who are formed by the Word of God and by the celebration of the Eucharist and the other Sacraments, and who reach out to all those in need.

Bishop Barron on the Sacrament of Marriage

Recently, I had the great good pleasure of presiding at the wedding of my niece, Bryna and her now husband, Nelson. While we rejoice in their love for each other, the fact that they have now become living symbols of Christ the Bridegroom’s ecstatic love for his Bride, the Church is reason, in the very deepest sense, to give thanks.

Bishop Barron on Pope Francis’ Message to Priests

The theme that I have chosen for a retreat I'm hosting in Dublin is “Pope Francis Speaks to Priests.” I have culled a number of motifs from the Pope’s numerous talks, sermons, and lectures to priests, seminarians, and bishops. Allow me, in the course of this brief article to say just a few words about each one.

Bishop Barron on the Meaning of the Trinity

On Trinity Sunday we contemplate the mystery of God as a play of persons. The Father gives rise to the Son while the Father and Son give rise to the Holy Spirit. God's unity is never compromised because the three are consubstantial, one in being. To begin to consider this mystery we must consider that love is what God is.

Bishop Robert Barron Weekly Homilies

The Silent Presence of God

Elijah is a contemplative who has the eyes to see and the ears to listen. God does not appear in the glory of the world. Rather, he appears in a silent way. Weed out of your heart all of those fears and desires that prevent you from discerning the silent presence of God.

Transfiguration and Deification

The Transfiguration signals the purpose of religion. The first thing we notice is that Jesus' appearance becomes more beautiful. Second, in his transfigured state, Jesus transcends space and time. Contemporary culture attempts to reduce all religion to ethics, but in Jesus' transfiguration we see that the final purpose of our religious devotion is not that we become just nice people, but rather we become transfigured as sons and daughters of God.

All Things Work Together for Good

Our second reading for this weekend is taken from the end of the eighth chapter of Paul’s magnificent letter to the Romans. In this great book of the Bible, we learn that in Christ, God has disclosed his providential plan whereby he intends to reconcile all things to himself. I don’t know about you, but those words always give me comfort and peace.
