What is Cowboy Catholics

Cowboy Catholics is the Catholic Student ministry at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church. The mission of Cowboy Catholics is to form lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ; men and women who live out the Gospel in their families and professions long after attending McNeese State University. "Evangelizing  through Excellence" captures our mission to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the McNeese Community. The Cowboy Catholic Student Center seeks to provide a home for students and a place of spiritual and intellectual formation.
