Father Peter Mangum was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Shreveport in the Cathedral of St. John Berchmans on June 29, 1990 with Bishop William B. Friend, who ordained him, and many other priests present for the Mass.
Father grew up in Bossier City, attending Christ the King Elementary School, and then Jesuit High School and Centenary College.

His priestly assignments have taken him to the following parishes within our diocese:

He has also served as Judicial Vicar since 1994.
So many families and individuals have been blessed by his ministry!
