Welcome to St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church Website. We are located in Plaquemine, Louisiana. St. John the Evangelist is often referred to as the “Cathedral on the Bayou.”  St. John the Evangelist was established in 1850 and is now home to 1800 families in the Plaquemine area.  See our church bulletin and church calendar for the latest information.

Join us for daily Mass as well as Sunday Mass. The schedule for both are available in the left column of the home page. Many ministries are thriving in our church to serve the community of faith and those in need around us. We are grateful for Rev. Greg Daigle, Deacon Alfred Ricard, the church staff and the many volunteer laity that give so generously of their time, talents and tithes.

Please refer to the different areas on our website to learn more about St. John the Evangelist but more importantly, ask one of St. John’s parishioners and they will be glad to help. You may also call the church office at 225-687-2402.

Guidelines for Mass: May 2020

Fr. Greg's Weekend Reflection



We will be following the directives of the Diocese of Baton Rouge and Bishop Michael Duca.

All celebrations of Sunday and daily Masses are cancelled here at St. John. In addition, all of the following are canceled as well:

Bible Study, Choir Rehearsals, Meetings and Retreats, Devotions (Divine Mercy Novena, Stations of the Cross), and Baptisms.

In addition, The Adoration Chapel will be closed until further notice.

The Church will be open daily for private/personal prayer.

Church contributions may be mailed to the parish office @ 57805 Main Street, Plaquemine, LA  70764. Or, perhaps, this may be the perfect time to consider "Online Giving" to avoid disruption in the financial well-being of the parish. It is safe, convenient, and a very simple process to sign up. Please call 1-800-348-2886 for assistance in getting signed up.

Finally, the Parish Office will be closed. If you have an EMERGENCY and need to contact someone in the office, please call 225-776-0168. Remember, this is only for an *EMERGENCY* situation.

Let us keep each other in prayer as we face this unprecedented time in the church. God Bless!
