Welcome to Holy Ghost Catholic Church

DEAR PARISHIONERS: Our community has experienced a devastation like none other. I hope and pray that you and your families are safe. As many of you were affected by the storm, the church was not spared either, it is not usable at this time; however, where there is a will, there is a way...I am so thankful to share with you that we will have Masses this weekend in the Parish Hall. I hope and pray that you will join me and Fr. Cayet as we celebrate Eucharist together as a faith-filled community. God will see us through this!




SUNDAY: 7:30AM, 9:30AM, & 11:30AM




Welcome to our new Youth Minister!


We are so happy to welcome Mrs. Melissa Berghausen and her family to Holy Ghost Parish!


Melissa finds her greatest joy in seeing lives transformed by the power of prayer. She and her husband have a daughter and have recently moved from Louisville, Kentucy and New Albany, Indiana where she ministered as the director of youth ministry. Melissa has ministered in parishes in the areas of spirituality, social, and service.


Adopted and raised into a devout Catholic family, Melissa earned her B.A. from Southeastern Louisiana University in Kinesiology. She has ministered in many facets of her life which has continued to call her to minister to the young church. Melissa enjoys all kinds of sports, hanging out with her family and friends, watching movies, learning new things, and most of all, being a wife and a mother!
