The history of the Catholic Church in Pierre Part is one that is closely tied to the history of several of its neighboring parishes. Our inhabitants, largely Acadians, settled along the bayous of Louisiana in about the year 1775. St. Joseph the Worker Parish was established in 1858 with our first resident priest coming in 1895.

During all these years, parishioners of St. Joseph the Worker have maintained a strong devotion to our chosen patroness, The Blessed Virgin Mary. A statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary sits on a small island adjacent to the church. Mass is held on the Island on the 2nd Saturday of May and the 2nd Saturday of October if weather permits.

We welcomed everyone to join our parish family. St. Joseph the Worker has a strong Christian Formation Program, active Homebound Ministries, Rosary Ministries, Prayer Ministries, Praise and Worship Group, Come, Lord Jesus& Scripture Groups, Ministry of the Sick and a Youth Ministry Group.

We invite you to join us and visit our beautiful historic parish on the bayou!

Ryan Simoneaux ***MAJOR CHANGES*** to Month-long Mission Trip--
Due to recent tragic events on the island of Mindanao, Philippines which involved 103 dead and thousands of displaced in the city of Marawi, FMC (Family Missions Company) has decided to move SSME (Summer School of Missionary Evangelization) program in Malaybalay (which is a 5 hour drive from Mawari) to a FMC mission home in Goa, India. Ryan has decided to make the transition to go to India and will still be participating in SSME. Please pray for peace in the Philippines, and especially for our FMC full-time mission family in Malaybalay,  the Romeros. In addition to this please keep all of those planning this transition and those making this transition, especially Ryan, in your prayers. Thank you!
