St. Landry Church Cemetery Tours scheduled for October

Posted: Updated:

St. Landry Cemetery Tours will take place at the St. Landry Catholic Church Cemetery located on Union Street in Opelousas. The tours will be held two weekends in October starting this weekend on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday October 15. Tours will begin again the following weekend on Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22.

The cemetery tours began in 2003 as part of the Louisiana Bicentennial Celebration. The tour theme this year is "Leaders & Legends" and will take visitors on a historical journey through the living and "not-so-living" history of Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, and Louisiana. Spirits, portrayed by members of the Opelousas Little Theater, will tell the stories of St. Landry Parish's most notable citizens. 

Tours begin at every half hour on Saturday beginning at 6:00 p.m. The last tour will begin at 8:00 p.m. On Sundays tours will take place at 2:00 p.m. and 3 p.m. Tours will be limited to 15 to 20 guest as to be sure there is enough room for everyone to enjoy the evening. Each tour will last one hour.

Organizers ask that those who attend bring comfortable walking shoes. The tours are not readily handicapped accessible (but will be made available at the 3:00 p.m. tours on Sunday, October 15 & 22) and are not suitable for children under 10 due to safety. All proceeds from the tours will go to the restoration of the cemetery.

Tickets for the tours are $10. For more information visit stlandrycatholicchurch.org or call 337-942-6552 or 308-3474.
