Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos parish officially opened this Sunday morning in Spanish Fort.

The new parish doesn't yet have a permanent building, so instead held its first mass Sunday morning at Prodisee Pantry in Spanish Fort.

They had initially put out seats for 200 people. Before mass they had to put up an additional 200 seats because of an overflow crowd. The archdiocese is building a new church on Highway 31 north of I-10 and east of Highway 181.
