The Bells Will Ring Again is the key message behind St. Jean Baptiste Parish’s fundraising efforts to rebuild their church, destroyed by fire June 30, 2021.
The Parish’s Building Committee is hard at work and says lots of great things are happening.
They are reaching out to parishioners and the community for feedback for the new building of St Jean Baptiste Parish.

There are several ways the community can donate to support the effort. All funds will go directly to the Church ReBuild

I am thinking the church was insured… or did it have insurance?
The church was insured but not enough to cover the amount to build the new church.
