The Catholic Faith is central to any discussion of the history and heritage of Louisiana's French-Creole families.  Not only was the church the center of community life and culture, but also, the church has many vital records instrumental to such genealogical research.

St. Charles Catholic Church in  Goudeau, Louisiana, is a central part of the history and heritage of French Creole ancestors who lived in Goudeau, Louisiana.   Through donations, the National Grand Family Heritage Foundation established a fund to preserve French-Creole history and heritage of the parish community of Goudeau, Louisiana.  The fund purchased a memorial stained glass window and plaque denoting founding French-Creole ancestors and placed two related historical markers in the cemetery.  Much appreciate to donors who sought to preserve the history and heritage of this area for the benefit if the public and tourists.



 Mere Henriette Delille 

Look for future information about another French-Creole descendant - Mother Henriette Delille of New Orleans (1813-1862) - who founded the Sisters of the Holy Family religious congregation that still performs many charitable works.   The Venerable Henriette Delille's cause for canonization is being considered by the Vatican in Rome.
