Father Vaughn celebrates 50th anniversary

The 50th anniversary of Rev. Roland Vaughn’s ordination to the priesthood was marked by the celebration of Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Lake Arthur Tuesday, Dec. 21. The Most Reverend Glen John Provost officiated and served as the homilist.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate with Father Vaughn on his fiftieth anniversary of ordination to the Holy Priesthood,” Bishop Provost said. “He and I have known each for over 50 years, having attended the same seminary, Immaculata, in Lafayette. He was a few years older but I recall his dedication to studies and prayer.

Through the years, he has continued to serve the faithful of this Diocese in various assignments. He is a good and faithful priest who has persevered in his vocation and always placed the needs of God’s faithful above his own. He is an example to us all. God bless him for the years to come.”
