On behalf of the Parish Family of St. John, it gives me great joy to present this website about St John the Evangelist Catholic Church. This church is one of the most architecturally beautiful edifices in the entire state of Louisiana and Diocese of Baton Rouge. It is the most beautiful house in Plaquemine. It is God’s house.
It is here that generations of Catholics have come to baptize their children, marry their beloved, receive Jesus in Holy Eucharist. It is a sacred place where we hear God’s word proclaimed in Scripture, where we have confirmed our faith and where we have come to give our loved ones back to God in death. It is the most sacred ground in Plaquemine.
St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church has a long history of deeply rooted Catholic faith and culture. It is my hope that this website will bring our parish closer together in celebrating the precious gift of our Catholic heritage, in experiencing the Sacraments and in serving others through the many ministries of our church.
While this Church is a beautiful structure, it is the people, the parishioners, the men and women of faith who are the living stones that make this parish alive and dynamic.
May God continue to bless us and let His face shine upon us.
Father Greg Daigle
