Fr. Marc Noel

Originally from Alberta, Canada, Fr. Marc had a profound conversion experience in 1986 at 19 years old when he was a fine arts student in Calgary.

The following summer he travelled to El Paso, TX to volunteer a year of his life serving the poor with a Jesuit priest Fr. Rick Thomas. At the end of that year was the first time he was very open to the possibility of becoming a priest. He returned to his home diocese and began studies for the priesthood. With lingering doubts and uncertainty, he left the seminary and evaded this call serving God as missionary and in youth ministry. But he was unable to shake the call to priesthood. He re-entered the seminary in South America to discern if he was called to be a missionary priest. In the end, he decided to join the Diocese of Alexandria, LA and was ordained a Catholic Priest in 1998. Fr. Marc is currently serving as the pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Moreauville, LA.
