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 Reaching the iGens

Jean Twenge’s book “iGen” about the generation born between 1995 and 2012 is one of the most fascinating—and depressing—texts I’ve read in the past decade. Her chapter on religious attitudes and behaviors among iGen’ers unambiguously indicates what is leading this most unreligious generation in our history away from the churches.

Bishop Barron on the Mass

Why is the Mass so important? Why is it the “source and summit” of the Christian life? It is the most beautiful encounter between friends and it is an anticipation of the play that will be our permanent preoccupation in heaven.

The Wise and Foolish Virgins

How do we wait? That is the question addressed by Jesus' parable for today. While we wait for the second coming of the Lord, we should keep our lamps stocked with oil, that is to say, we should pray, study, love, do the works of mercy, and keep vigil. In so doing, we are ready for the arrival of the Bridegroom.

A Challenge to the Sons of Levi

Our readings for this weekend are tough for everyone, but especially for those who are in positions of leadership in the Church. I’ve been a priest for 31 years (and now a bishop for going on three), and I will confess that the words we hear from the prophet Malachi and the Lord Jesus about the corrupt religious leadership of their time and place are deeply challenging and unnerving.

The Great Commandment

Today's magnificent Gospel should set the tone for your entire life. Trying to trap him, the Pharisees ask Jesus which of the commandments of the law is the greatest. His clear and simple answer is that we should direct all our love toward God, and therefore, love what he loves.
