St. Andrew's Episcopal Church
The first services of St. Andrew's Episcopal Mission, Bayou DuLarge, were held in 1911.
Santa on the Bayou
For 100 years, Santa Claus has made an annual visit to the children of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Bayou Dularge, to deliver Christmas presents. With his help, this is one of St. Andrew's biggest outreach projects. The evening kicks-off with Santa arriving at Bayou Dularge by shrimp boat where he proceeded to the church for a hot gumbo dinner. The children are given presents and families in need of assistance are given gift baskets of household goods.
Blessing of the Fleet
On the last Sunday of April, for over 60 years, the congregations of St. Andrew's Episcopal Mission and St. Eloi Roman Catholic Church organize a blessing of the fleet just before the opening of the brown shrimp season in the Gulf of Mexico. Prayers are offered for a bountiful and safe year. A parade of shrimping boats takes place along Bayou Dularge where a member of the clergy will bless all the people and boats along the route.
