History

    Using texts like "History of the Missions of the Ouachita," much can be learned about this little parish with a big history.  In the year 1859, St. Mary's Catholic Church was a mission of St. Matthew's Parish; Fr. Gergaud first visited the mission of Winnsboro in August 1859.  Fr. Gergaud said Mass at the home of L. Zimm, preached in the local courthouse, and even won three converts for the Faith.
