Saint Joseph Catholic Church is located at 703 Klock Street, seven blocks from U.S. Highway 71 in historic Cheneyville. The civil community was established in 1811 as a center of trade, shipping, and commerce for the plantation system that flourished in the community during the antebellum period. The vast sugarcane, cotton, corn, and rice plantations that presently operate in the area remain among the most productive in Louisiana.

With the establishment of the Texas and Pacific Railway through the tenth ward of Avoyelles in 1882, Catholic families in the area began to shape a small community. By 1888, this community had grown and the Catholics in the area were in need of a priest who could be in residence near them--at the time, the nearest priests were in Cottonport, Mansura, and Plaucheville.

Saint Francis de Sales Parish is located on Louisiana Highway 1 at the Rapides-Avoyelles Parish line. The community of Echo dates to the mid 1800s and is located near the banks of the Red River almost twenty miles south of Alexandria. Historically, the community is named for the “echo” of the whistles from paddlewheel steamboats that once plied the river to transport valuable cotton shipments to New Orleans.
