Welcome to the St. John Vianney's website. Our beautiful church is located just off of Highway 14 in Bell City, Louisiana. Our Parish was officially established in 1939 by the Most Reverend Jules B. Jeanmard, Bishop of Lafayette, and it serves the communities of Bell City, Hayes, Holmwood, and portions of Sweetlake and South Lake Charles. 

The founding pastor, The Reverend Mathias J. Cramers, arrived in April 1938. The rectory, to the east of the church was completed in August 1939. The next project, of course, was a church, and groundbreaking was held on August 8, 1940.  St. John Vianney is now a part of the Diocese of Lake Charles, that was established January 1980. The church building and its grounds have been renovated and expanded over the years to better serve the faithful community.  

Please join us. Our regular Mass times are listed below and events are detailed in the calendar. Our most recent bulletins can be found below.
