St. Mary’s Welcomes 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! 


Principal Opening: Catholic High School of Pointe Coupee has a Principal Opening for the 2020-2021 school year. Please click here for application information. Deadline for application is March 13, 2020. 

It has once again been brought to our attention that people who are on Fr. Pat’s email contacts are receiving emails from people pretending to be Fr. Pat. The latest email is requesting a favor from the recipient and to reply back to them. These messages are bogus. Please do NOT respond to those messages, do NOT click links, and do NOT open attachments. Whenever in doubt, you should call the parish office to verify the validity of the request.

Please refer to the bulletin, calendar and Liturgical Ministry Schedule for full coverage of announcements and schedules.
