Friends of St. Paul Church, Inc. is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the historic St. Paul Church building located in Bayou Goula, Louisiana. In September of 2009, the vacant St. Paul Church located on the historic River Road was severely damaged by Hurricane Gustav. In response to imminent demolition of the 140-year-old building, Friends of St. Paul Church, Inc. was established as a non-profit, non-denominational, non-affiliated organization which purchased the building & lot in November 2010. Its mission to restore and revitalize this architectural asset will ensure that the structure remains a useful resource to the community and a testament to its past. Sustainability of the structure will result from the Bayou Goula community and surrounding area’s utilization of the building for cultural, educational and community events.
