St. Joseph  Catholic Church
15710 LA Hwy. 16
French Settlement, LA 70733
225-698-3110

In 1887, the present day cypress St. Joseph Catholic Church was built. It was placed under the invocation of St. Joseph. It is the oldest chapel in Livingston parish. In the early years all records were kept in French, some are still in the rectory office.

The original alter was wood painted white with gold trim. a portion of the old altar is used at times during the year for honoring the blessed Virgin Mary. Father L.J. Dery, a long time pastor here, built the two-story rectory, the CCD center and convent in the rear to house religious sister. It was later remodeled into four class rooms and two more class rooms were added. We now have a large church hall which was built in 1990. It has a large community hall, kitchen, restrooms and three classrooms.

First Baptist Church was established on February 14, 1954 with 16 members. The original sanctuary was dedicated on September 5, 1955. The present sanctuary was occupied in 1992.

Sunday Bible study is provided for all ages. Sunday School begins at 9:50. Sunday evening classes begin at 6 p.m. Weekly worship services are held at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. A nursery is available for children three years old and younger for all Sunday Services. Wednesday evening classes begin at 6 p.m. standard time or 7 p.m. daylight saving time. Guest are welcome at all times.
We have since added a large pavilion behind that hall. There is a cemetery behind the church, on church property and an older community cemetery across the street. There are some very old graves in there and the names on most are still family names present in our community today, Aydell, Matherne, Brignac. Within recent years two mausoleums have been built on the property behind the church in the church cemetery.

Father James Kinkead is the first diocesan priest assigned to this parish and has been here since 1986. He is a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. At the present we have approximately 500 Catholic families in the area and about 200 children attend the CCD program.
