One other Catholic Louisiana post from down in the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
At St Louis Cathedral the Archdiocese of New Orleans had 154 catechumens (persons who have yet to be baptized). The rest of the 352 people of the soon-to-be-Catholics inside St. Louis Cathedral are candidates or people who have been baptized in an other Faith Community but becoming Catholic. Technically these are not called "converts" , but in reality everyone calls them that.
A photo gallery is here . The Catholic Newspaper has story on it that highlights the stories of two of these people. See A ‘Road to Damascus’ experience.
