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 Procession for Our Lady of Guadalupe

Friends, I'd like to share with you this video from our annual Virgen de Guadalupe procession and prayer service in Santa Barbara, California. As you watch and share this video, please also pray for the good people of my pastoral region as the fires continue to blaze across Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. And may the kindness and comfort of the Mother of God, Our Lady of Guadalupe, be with us all today and every day.

Bishop Barron on Black Elk and the Need for Catechists

At the November meeting of the United States bishops, I heard an impassioned case for the canonization of Nicholas Black Elk, a Lakota Indian medicine man who converted to Catholicism and eagerly took up the task of catechesis within his community. My prayer is that, if the cause of Black Elk moves forward, we might one day invoke him as a real icon for catechists in the Catholic Church.

Bishop Barron on Social Justice and Evangelization

The seventeenth century “slave of the slaves,” St. Peter Claver, dedicated his life to caring for the needs of slaves as they arrived in Cartagena from Africa. According to St. Peter Clever, social justice includes and prioritizes evangelization, a mission which flies in the face of Immanuel Kant's argument that religion is basically resolvable into ethics.

Clear a Path

In our magnificent first reading from the prophet Isaiah, which is echoed in the words of John the Baptist in today's Gospel, a voice cries out: “Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill shall be made low.” Advent is a great time for us to clear the ground, to make level the path, so as to facilitate what God, with all his heart, wants to do.

Watching for Grace

Every time Advent rolls around, I remind people to go back to the words of that most famous of Advent hymn, “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” We hear, “Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel, that mourns in lonely exile here, until the Son of God appear.” Until we can move into the spiritual space suggested by those words, we will not catch the meaning of this season.

He Reigns! The Solemnity of Christ the King

When Israel begins to long for a new David, the true David and true king of the world, we witness the longing for God. Jesus Christ is precisely this king: the Davidic king, and God ruling his creation. His ministry reveals the nature of his kingship, from the manger to the cross.
