It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website for the parish of St. Louis King of France Catholic Church. Whether you are a newcomer to our area in search of a parish home, a member of the parish family, a Catholic coming home or simply a “cyber-surfer,” it is my conviction that the Lord has led you to this page. Your presence is lovingly welcomed and appreciated within our global Catholic community.
Our parish is a Christo-centric community in Metairie, Louisiana. Diverse in makeup, we are young and old, natives and transplants. We exist for one reason: to come to know and be conformed to, the Person of Jesus. In prayer and worship and service, we gather in His Name, relying on His promise to be in our midst. Founded firmly in the faith and truth of the Catholic Church, we are proud of our heritage and hopeful for our future.
May God be with you and yours in your journey of faith!
Rev. Hoang M. Tuong, Pastor

Return to Me with All Your Heart is the overarching theme of a Lenten prayer series at St. Louis King of France Church in Bucktown. It begins with a Lenten reflection “God Wants You Back” on March 15 from 6:00-7:30 PM with Megan Noll, presenter and Rita West, musician. Megan and her musical guest Rita will share stories about falling out of love, avoiding the family and returning to God with all your heart. Time for reflection, presentation, prayer, fellowship and a short break will be included. All ages and stages of life are welcome. This event is FREE!
Welcome Ms. Megan Noll as the new Pastoral Administrator for St. Louis King of France Church. She moved to Metairie last year, and has discovered many of the charms to living there including the Bucktown Seafood Festival and Lake Pontchartrain. Ms. Megan has an extensive background to help our community form intentional disciples. Educationally, she received a Master of Arts from the University of Divinity, Australia with an additional degree in Marriage and Family from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute. Her first “real” job was as a youth minister and religious educator at St. Michael Parish and School in Stillwater, Minnesota. Since then, she has worked with dioceses, parish and schools in some capacity in both Australia and the United States.
As our new administrator, she first wants to meet and listen to the school and parish communities. Forming intentional disciples may include socializing, small group sharing, evangelizing, praying and assisting Rev. Hoang with sacramental preparation, youth ministries and family endeavors. In addition to her own business as a consultant, the best days to reach her at the parish office will be Monday-Wednesday. Feel free to schedule a time to meet with her, share your parish or faith experiences (both good and bad) or get involved at 504.834.9977 ext. 4 or email@example.com.
