Roots of Faith: A History of the Diocese of Baton Rouge tells the story of the Church in South Louisiana. It begins with the settlement of the area by explorers in the 17th  century and follows the progress of the people, the parishes, and the faith from early statehood through the 21st century.  From the first Mass in Baton Rouge on the banks of the Mississippi to the rise of the oil industry, this book explores the ways Catholicism has shaped the area that became the Diocese of Baton Rouge.
