Fete Dieu du Teche 2017

This is the annual Eucharistic Boat Procession down the Bayou Teche, sponsored by the Community of Jesus Crucified.  The procession will take place on Tuesday, August 15, 2017, the Feast of the Assumption.  The day begins at 8 a.m. with Mass celebrated by Bishop Deshotel at St. Leo the Great Church in Leonville.  A cavalcade of boats carrying the Holy Sacrament will then make their way down the Bayou Teche, retracing the steps of our Acadian ancestors, toward St. Martinville.  After stopping at Churches along the way for recitation of the Rosary and Benediction of the Holy Sacrament, participants will visit Notre Dame de Perpetuel Secours, St. Martin de Tours Church, and Mater Dolorosa Chapel for Solemn Vespers and Final Benediction.   To register a boat for the procession or  to find more information about the event, log on to www.fetedieuduteche.org, call 337-394-6550 or send an email to fetedieuduteche@gmail.com
