The Mother Church
In early January, Christmas angels were still on hand to greet us at the Mother Church of the Acadians.
By the time of our visit, we’d missed the conclusion of the year-long celebration of the 250th anniversary of the church, which was founded by a group of Acadians who’d been evicted from Nova Scotia by the British. These exiles brought their rich culture and traditions which have left a strong, permanent imprint upon Louisiana.
