Welcome to the website of Ascension of Our Lord and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Churches in historic Donaldsonville, Louisiana - A Eucharistic Community since 1772. The establishment of our Catholic faith community pre-dates the establishment of Donaldsonville by 50 years at a time when the United States territory was still served by missionary clergy of the Catholic Church in Europe.
