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 “Ben-Hur”

Roma Downey and Mark Burnett have produced a new instantiation of the epic film, “Ben-Hur”. What principally differentiates it from the 1959 Charlton Heston version is its greater stress on the strange power of Christ to bring about forgiveness—an emphasis much needed today.

A Warning Bell in the Night

Most of us spur into action when we believe that our financial state is in dire straits. Why don't we act in the same way in regards to our spiritual state? Today people need the same spiritual concern that people had in the past. They need to want to establish a relationship with God, that which is of paramount importance. So wake up, and place God at the center of your life!

A Coin, A Sheep, A Son

Our Gospel for today gives us three classic parables, each one exploring the notion which is at the very heart of the spiritual life, namely, that God is the one who searches for us. Why would God fret over one little soul? Why would He bother? Well, it’s His nature. It’s what He does. Moreover—as we see in the coin, the sheep, and the son—recovering a lost soul is what He rejoices in doing.

The Cost of Discipleship

Our Gospel for today is breathtaking, first for what it says about Jesus and second for what it says about us. Jesus compels a choice the way no other figure does. Either he is who he says he is, or he is a bad man. The bland middle way that he is a great teacher simply won’t do. In the presence of the one who makes such an extraordinary claim, we have to make a decision.
