I enjoyed my visit very much, the Evangeline statue pulls at your heart, and the little cemetary is well worth a visit. I attended mass unexpectedly (happened to go to take pictures of the statue just as mass was starting). I was warmly welcomed (in travelling clothes) and enjoyed the service very much. I'm not very religious, but it was an uplifting experience to go to Church in a place where people have prayed for over 160 years. The building is lovely inside too. Well worth the short pleasant drive from Lafayette and area.
