Brock Dalgleish and Riley Barrington have been together since the day that they met in June 2018 at a pool party, sharing their first date one day later and moving in together just two months after that. “It was so fast, which is so unlike me,” Dalgleish tells Yahoo Life. But it worked.

Sex acts ‘desecrated’ altar at Pearl River LA church

A Catholic church in Pearl River, Louisiana, has burned the altar where its former pastor was caught having sex with two women.

“His behavior was obscene, his desecration of the altar is demonic,” said Archbishop Gregory Aymond of New Orleans, who consecrated a new altar at the church Sunday, WVUE reports.

The former pastor at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Travis Clark, has been removed from ministry and is no longer on the diocese payroll, WDSU reported.

Clark, 37, was arrested Sept. 30 with Mindy Dixon and Melissa Cheng on obscenity charges after a passer-by reported seeing them having sex on the church’s altar, the New Orleans Advocate reported.

Police confiscated sex toys, stage lights and two recording devices from inside the church, according to the publication.

Attorney Bradley Phillips, who represents Dixon and Cheng, called their arrest “appalling,” and said they were engaged in consensual sex with an

Newlyweds beat Delta to the altar in hurricane-rushed wedding

A Louisiana couple planning to get married Saturday had to push their nuptials up a few days as Hurricane Delta slowly made its way toward the state — then made landfall Friday. 

Ian and Taylor Gaspard, of Abbeville, 80 miles east of Creole, where Delta made landfall, were supposed to exchange vows Saturday in front of 300 guests inside Saint Mary Magdalene Church.

Their plans were scuttled because of Delta. In an effort to beat the storm, they held the ceremony at the church Thursday in front of friends and family.

Newlyweds beat Delta to the altar in hurricane rushed wedding

ABBEVILLE, Louisiana (KTRK) — Twenty-four hours ahead of Hurricane Delta’s arrival, church bells rang out at 6 p.m. and a bride’s high heels clicked on the church’s front walk as she raced to get to her wedding.

Taylor Choate and Ian Gaspard picked Oct. 10 as their wedding day months ago. In a year when COVID-19 had re-scheduled so many events, they thought they would luck out. Then Hurricane Delta zeroed in on the small town they call home.

“We were supposed to get married Saturday with over 300 people,” Taylor to ABC13’s Ted Oberg outside Abbeville’s Saint Mary Magdalen Church. “We knew about the storm, but we were kind of like, eh, because it wasn’t supposed to be coming to us. Then all of a sudden it was supposed to come like right to us. So of course I got hysterical.”

It was a moment any bride can identify
