Inscription. St. Joseph Church Parish was founded in 1817 as a mission. In 1819 a church was erected on Bayou LaFourche adjacent to the present cemetery. A brick church was built in 1849 under the direction of Fr. Charles Menard. This structure stood until 1916 when it was destroyed by fire. In 1923 the present church was dedicated under the leadership of Rev. A.M. Barbier. The builder was Joseph Robichaux, well-known Thibodaux contractor. The design is Renaissance Romanesque. The interior ornamental painting was not completed until 1954. In 1977 the church was named co-cathedral for the new Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux.
