The Congregation of the Roman Catholic church of St. Mary Pamela was organized in 1840 to administer a cemetery established here about 1820. Father Charles Menard dedicated the first church under the title of The Nativity of The Blessed Virgin Mary on August 3, 1850. Father Amedee Beccard was the first resident pastor. The second church, constructed of bricks made and timber cut on church property during the pastorate of Father E. Vigroux (1870-1895), was dedicated in 1888. Its facade was remodeled during the pastorate of Father Peter Nies (1922-1958). The present church was dedicated in 1966 under the title of St. Mary's Nativity.
