Mary, Mother of Jesus Church

Welcome to Mary, Mother of Jesus Church

History

Records show that on July, 1908, Bishop Van de Ven blessed a chapel in Woodworth, which is believed to be St. Joseph Chapel located where Mary, Mother of Jesus Church stands today. The chapel was a mission of St. Francis Xavier Cathedral.

In 1926, Woodworth was a thriving sawmill town. But after all the trees had been cut down and there was nothing more to harvest, the sawmill relocated to Bessmae, Texas and so did many of the Catholic people.

Welcome

History

In 1952, at the request of Miss Maude and Miss Kate Clark, residents of Tioga, with Monsignor Paul E. Conway, Pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Pineville, plans were formulated to begin a Mission Church in the area.  At the request of Monsignor Conway, a plot of land for the Church was donated by Mr. Sam Allen of Tioga.  The Church was constructed by parishioners under the direction of architect Mr. Harold DeKeyser and Father Patrick Donohoe, who was the first priest to look after the needs of the mission.

St. John the Baptist Church, Deville

Welcome

History

Catholic services in the Deville community date back to 1834 when a pastor at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral in Alexandria began conducting Mass for a group of farmers at Holloway Prairie.

About 20 years later, a small mission church was built on the site of what is now called the "old Catholic Cemetery," a site which was the object of a major cleanup in 1984. At that time, the oldest grave found was dated 1855.
