Eucharistic Procession to take place this weekend up Bayou Lafourche

Eucharistic Procession to take place this weekend up Bayou Lafourche

A beautiful day of adoration during a Eucharistic Procession for the faithful is coming to Bayou Lafourche this Saturday, Oct. 6.

The three-part succession, which is open to the public, includes boating from Golden Meadow to Larose, followed by a vehicle procession to Thibodaux’s St. Joseph’s Cemetery and ending by foot at St. Joseph’s Co-Cathedral also in Thibodaux.

Following an 8 a.m. Mass at Our Lady of Prompt Succor in Golden Meadow, the procession will take the Consecrated Host out in procession to boats waiting on Bayou Lafourche where they will travel up the bayou.

The public is encouraged to follow by boat or by vehicle up to Larose's Our Lady of the Rosary Church where they will disembark for 1 hour of prayer in the Church.

Following the prayer, Eucharistic Jesus will be carried by fire truck up the bayou to St. Joseph's Cemetery where all will then walk with the Blessed Sacrament in procession to St. Joseph's Co-Cathedral for Vespers and Benediction in Thibodaux at 2 p.m.

People living along the route who may be unable to participate in the actual procession, gathering along the bayou to show your support is a great alternative and provides an excellent opportunity to greet the Blessed Sacrament as it passes.

Again, the procession will begin in Golden Meadow to Larose via registered boats, Larose to St. Joseph’s Cemetery by vehicle and St. Joseph’s Cemetery to St. Joseph’s Co-Cathedral in Thibodaux.

For more information on the procession, or to register a boat, emails may be sent to or call Trisha 985-475-5428 or Greg 985-637-8198.

Interested parties may also contact any church offices along the route.
