We went for a Sunday drive this afternoon to look for three little roadside chapels in neighboring Independence, Louisiana. Our journey took us just north of Hammond off of Interstate 55. We found only one of the chapels open for visitors – St. Joseph Chapel, off of 1065 a quarter of a mile past Blackcat Rd.
The chapel dedicated to St. Expedito was only able to be viewed from our car. Sadly, a junk yard – for lack of a better term – has sprung up literally right against the left hand side of the tiny church. I’d never heard of a St. Expedito, so I did an internet search. The article is most interesting. You may click on the link above to learn more.
Lastly, we passed the Liuzza Strawberry Farm on the way to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Chapel. We couldn’t get inside of this chapel but were able to view a little grotto honoring St. Francis Xavier Cabrini round back. I’m sorry these photos are not in any particular order – too tired to rearrange:)
