Fodor's Review

The mother church of the Acadians and one of the country's oldest Catholic churches, this 1836 building was erected on the site of an earlier church. Inside is a replica of the Lourdes grotto and a baptismal font said to have been a gift from Louis XVI. Emmeline Labiche, who may have inspired Henry Wadsworth Longellow's poem "Evangeline," is buried in the small cemetery behind the church.
