In August of 2016, historic flooding devastated multiple parishes and severely impacted others across the Diocese of Baton Rouge in southern Louisiana. The Catholic Commentator & Catholic Life Television team up to chronicle the events When the Waters Rose.
Parishioners throughout our diocese need your prayers and support.
On Friday, March 11, 2016, floodwaters from the Bogue Falaya River inundated Saint Joseph Abbey and Seminary College with nearly two feet of water. The impact of the flood far surpasses damages suffered in Hurricane Katrina — especially in light of record enrollment in the seminary. Although nobody was hurt, 31 buildings were damaged, and total losses may exceed $30 million.
SJASC needs your help, and with your prayers and donations, they will recover and thrive from this experience.

There’s an old saying that goes, “Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.” Maybe you have been away from the Church for a little while or for quite some time, but now you feel a tug at your heart calling you back to the Catholic Church. Listen to that tug. It’s your Heavenly Father reaching his arms out to you, the Holy Spirit whispering in your ear, hoping to draw you home.
Catholics Come Home features interviews with those who recently returned to Jesus and the Catholic Church as a result of the Catholics Come Home campaign and responding to the call of the Holy Spirit. Guests include former atheists, agnostics, Protestant Christians, and fallen-away Catholics who come home.
Catholics Come Home airs at the following times:
|Tuesday @ 9:30a||Wednesday @ 11:30p|
|Friday @ 2:30p||Saturday @ 10:30a|
