About Music at Good Shepherd:

Located in the historic Charpentier District of downtown Lake Charles, Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd has been a bedrock of the community since 1884. A gothic-style building of light gray sandstone was build and dedicated in 1897. The tower was buit on the northwest corner of the church in 1953, and a 1,000 pound bronze bell made by Petit-pritzen Bellmakers of Holland was installed the following year. More recent additions are the Chapel of the Resurrection, the columbarium, and a covered portico. In 1984 the church has plated on the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, the church actively maintains the legacy of Anglican music for choir and organ through Morning Prayer, Evensong, and world-class concerts through the leadership of Dr. Patrick Parker ( For more information, or to find out how you can be a part of or support the music ministry, please contact
