Our Parish Membership
Our Lady of the Gulf parish is the fifth oldest parish in Mississippi and the third oldest on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Established in 1847, the parish serves a diverse population, living in a very tight-knit and family oriented community.
Many of our families have lived in the area for centuries. The area provides a wonderful atmosphere for families to raise their children.
Presently, we have approximately 700 families who belong to the parish. Many of our parish families have been displaced since Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005. Many have settled elsewhere in the country, choosing to be near extended family members. Others are in transition, rebuilding their homes with the hope of returning to the area in the not-too-distant future.
