If you receive more than one mailing, please let us know so we can consolidate the information.

If you did not receive one in the mail, then you are not registered with us or we do not have your current mailing address.

Year of St. Joseph

We are celebrating the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph being declared the Patron of the Universal Church.  Our own St. Joseph Church in Ville Platte is one of the pilgrimage sites where the plenary indulgence can be obtained by visiting and praying at the church. The plenary indulgence requires Holy Communion that day, prayers for the Pope and confession within 20 days for venial sins, for mortal sins confession must be done before.

When is the best time to visit St. Joseph Church?

  1. Every Sunday morning at the 8:30am Mass
  2. Every Wednesday evening at 6:00pm for the St. Joseph devotion (prayers to St. Joseph, rosary, Litany, etc. will be recited).
  3. Schedule an appointment by calling our office!

St. Joseph, pray for us!
