Our Lady Queen of All Saints, located in Ville Platte, LA, is a Roman Catholic Church in the Diocese of Lafayette. It is under the care of Bishop J. Douglas Deshotel (who is from Basile). Our pastor is Fr. Mitchell Guidry. For our address and phone number, see our Contact page.
INDOOR Public Masses resume this weekend!
Although we are only allowed to seat 25% of our capacity (which is roughly 125 people), we do not anticipate any problems. HOWEVER, please be patient as we try to accommodate everyone who shows up. We will have extra seating available under the canopy.
Church will be open all day on Saturday, so you can arrive very early, if you’d like. On Sunday morning, church will be open at 7:30 to start seating people.
Per the bishop’s guidelines, the following has to be respected:
** Limit group seating to persons who are from the same household
** Seating between (groups of) people must maintain a 6-foot distance
** The Faithful continue to be dispensed from attending Mass; so, if a person/family does not want to attend Mass, he/it is not obligated to do so
** Individuals with symptoms of illness are to stay home
** Those with pre-existing conditions or who are over 65-years-old are at a higher risk of experiencing worse symptoms. Use prudence whether to attend Mass
According to state regulations, persons in public gatherings are strongly recommended to wear masks or face coverings.
Until retracted or altered by Bishop Deshotel, all Catholics in the Diocese of Lafayette remain dispensed from their obligation of attending Sunday Mass.
All the bishops of the State of Louisiana have determined that Catholics may fulfill their spiritual duty to consecrating the week (Sabbath) on any day of the week, including Monday-Saturday morning.
