Welcome to Holy Ghost Catholic Church



Mass obligation for Immaculate Conception dispensed...due to uncertain and possibly dangerous weather conditions, Bishop Robert W. Muench has dispensed all Catholics in the Diocese of Baton Rouge from attending the holy day of obligation Mass tomorrow,  Dec. 8th, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. Because of the lateness of this message, Masses scheduled in the Church parishes tomorrow may be celebrated unless conditions indicate otherwise. Click here to read on the Diocesan website.

FIRST RECONCILIATION has been cancelled for Dec. 9th at 9am because of the potential threat of “black ice” and other hazardous conditions. An email was sent to all of the parents.


Here are the remaining dates in our Deanery where the sacrament can be received:

  • Wednesday, Dec. 13th at 6pm at St. Margaret’s in Albany
  • Thursday, Dec. 14th at 6pm at Mater Dolorosa in Independence

**Every Saturday from 3pm to 3:45pm at Holy Ghost Church.


We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding!
