Central Deanery Centennial Celebration and Closing Ceremony

06:00 pm - 12/12/2018

@ Cajundome

444 Cajundome Blvd
Lafayette LA  70506



As the Centennial Celebration comes to a close, the Closing Mass and Celebration will occur in the Central Deanery at the Cajundome Convention Center on December 12, 2018, at 6pm with a Grand Reception to follow.

Archbishop Gregory Aymond (our Metropolitan Archbishop) will be the celebrant at our closing Mass for our Centennial Year with our Bishop Douglas Deshotel as the homilist.

This is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. All Catholics of the Diocese of Lafayette are especially invited to attend this Mass as on this date in 1918 was the first Mass celebrated in the Diocese by the first Bishop Jules B. Jeanmard.

All Catholics throughout our whole diocese are invited and truly encouraged to join us for this historical event to honor the work God has done to us and through us and our response to Him in this past Century of Love. We use this time to look at our past and present, our strengths and weaknesses, our triumphs and our failures so that we might focus on where God now hopes to lead us. God has loved us into this good Diocese of Lafayette throughout these 100 years for a purpose and hope.

The Mass will begin at 6 p.m. at the Cajundome Convention Center. There is no greater manner to enjoy and ask for God’s Presence, Blessing and Graces as in the Mass. As a Diocese, let us come together for this Holy and Historical Mass. Before and after the Mass, there will be a walk through Historical Exhibit and a video of historical sites and events. After the Mass, all are invited to come together and enjoy a reception. We are all one people of God, let us cherish and enjoy this time of history together. This Mass will incorporate our cultures, our music, our different races and nations and our different organizations which comprise and express our faith.

Live stream access of the Mass will be available at diolaf.org for those who are unable to attend in person.
