St. Jane De Chantal

Last updated: 5 months ago

St. Jane de Chantal Parish is a large Parish on the Northshore, about 225 square miles of land area, encompassing several communities and large rural tracts. St. Jane de Chantal Church is located in Abita Springs, LA; and our Mission Church- St. Michael the Archangel Mission - is located in Bush, La, 15 miles north. We serve not only Abita Springs and Bush, but also Waldheim, Sun, Talisheek, and even a large portion of the Bogue Chitto National Wildlife Refuge, should you find yourself there any weekend.

Interestingly enough, given the way the Parish boundaries are laid out, when you drive into Louisiana from Mississippi on I-59 (from Picayune, Hattiesburg, etc.,) you enter into Louisiana through St. Jane de Chantal Parish. Be assured of our prayers, and if you're ever in the area we'd love to welcome you at either of our Churches.

In addition to the other clergy listed, Fr. Angel Diaz, O.P. - Northshore Director of Hispanic Ministry, is in Residence at St. Jane Parish.

Abita Springs has no mail delivery, though uses PO Boxes.
