St. Mary’s is Praying for All!

St. Mary of False River is a Roman Catholic Church Parish located on the banks of False River in New Roads, Louisiana. The Parish is part of the Diocese of Baton Rouge and has a long history of serving the area.  We hope you will join us! 

Bishop Duca has released a letter to the faithful reinstating the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days beginning June 6, 2021. In addition, masks are no longer required to attend Mass or in the Adoration Chapel. It is still recommended, however, that masks still be worn by those who are more vulnerable to the virus. We encourage you to please read the bishop’s entire letter to find out more information


Please refer to the bulletin and calendar for full coverage of announcements and schedules.

Our Indian Missionary Society priests and their communities need your help. Many of those who have previously served in our diocese have been impacted by COVID-19. A few have died, and others are in critical condition. In this hour they and their communities need your prayers and financial support. Please answer the call to serve these men of God and our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ during this time of need. $45 Covers the cost of an Emergency Medical Supply Kit & Food for a week for a family of 5. If you feel led to support this cause, please visit: Thank you & God bless!
