Good News!

The Catholic Committee on Scouting and the Evangeline Area Council welcomed Seminarian Jacob Falgout as one of our newest Summer Camp Chaplain at Mt. Bayou.

Jacob Falgout

From St. Benedict Seminary in his first year of studies, Jacob Falgout was assigned by Fr. Kevin Bordelon, Lafayette Diocesan Vocations Director, to become our 2014 Mt. Bayou Summer Camp Chaplain. Jacob became a staff member of the three-week Evangeline Area BSA assignment, and provided daily Eucharistic services and Ecumenical services to Mt. Bayou staff, Scouts and Scouters attending the summer event. During his assignment, Jacob continues his Summer ministry formation at Sacred Heart Community in Ville Platte for the duration of his summer service to the Catholic Committee on Scouting. Thank you, Jacob for your ministry and your willingness to serve this important role of Scouting's "Duty to God!"

Bishop Michael Jarrell

Diocese of Lafayette receives National 2014 Quality Diocese Award!

QualityDiocese08

Meeting the full criteria of a quality program, the Lafayette Diocese, under the stewardship of Bishop Michael Jarrell, has received the National Catholic Committee on Scouting's "2014 Quality Diocese Award."  This honor is derived from the many dedicated hours the Diocesan Catholic Committee has served in  the planning and execution of programs in the Diocese of Lafayette by providing spiritual guidance and encouragement of Catholic Scouting ideals to Scouts an Scouters of all ages!

Our 2008 Religious Emblems "Duty to God" Retreat was held on Saturday, December 13th at St. Edward Catholic School in New Iberia, LA.  The Retreat was attended by 122 Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts and an impressive host of parental support to their sons' interest in their spiritual development.  

This year's retreat was again blessed with the presence of Bishop Michael Jarrell who celebrated a Mass at the opening of the annual diocesan retreat.

Bishop Jarrell explained his role, and the roles of his priests and ministers who serve the laity in the Diocese of Lafayette, the largest per-capita Diocese in the country.

The Lafayette Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting graciously thanks Jocelyn Derouen, Chairperson of the annual retreat, and Carolyn Peltier, her most capable retreat assistant, for their valuable service in youth ministry!  May God bless them and their RE teachers and staff for their dedicated efforts in our Mission!
