Church of the Ascension of Our Lord
716 Mississippi Street
Donaldsonville LA 70346
Beautiful cathedral-like structure built in the late 1800’s, serving the Chruch parish established in 1772 after which Ascension civil parish is named. Originally a mission to serve the growing community of Acadians and evangelize the nearby Native Americans; the largest and one of the most historic cemeteries in the area. Tours by appointment.
