DCMC Partners and The Lemoine Company Assist with Hurricane Laura Recovery Efforts

LAKE CHARLES, LA — The Diocese of Lake Charles, which experienced substantial losses across dozens of facilities due to Hurricane Laura, announces that it has selected DCMC Partners and The Lemoine Company to assist them with their recovery efforts. The firms, which have a long history providing similar services both in Louisiana and nationally, will provide the Diocese with project management support and will be responsible for overseeing and executing Federal Emergency Management Agency funded projects resulting from Hurricane Laura.

“The breadth and depth of losses within the Diocese are astounding,” said Stephanie Rodrigue, the Director of Temporal Goods at the Diocese of Lake Charles. “Initial estimates are just beginning to come in, but we think the Diocese experienced at least $60-$100 million in losses, maybe more.”

The list of known damages include: the destruction of five of the parishes and four others experiencing major damage; the loss of facilities and equipment supporting dozens of supported service organizations; and significant storm-related impacts across five of the six schools within the Diocese. This situation has created an unprecedented challenge and was a driver for the Diocese’s decision to seek outside expert assistance.

“It is critical that our many parishes, schools, and service entities get the help they need to return as soon as possible, so that we can continue to provide needed services and spiritual support in our communities,” said The Most Reverend Bishop Glen John Provost, M.A., D.D. “Our decision to hire DCMC Partners and The Lemoine Company after a considered, competitive process that involved many qualified firms, will help us begin our recovery process to fully restore our Diocese for today, as well as tomorrow.”
