A new painted wood church was built (date unknown). The church, however, burned down and a cinder block building replaced the wooden structure shortly thereafter. Mass was said in a small wooden structure that was located on site across the street from the current church until the cinder block church was built. The cinder block church was used for one decade before the present day church and rectory were built in the early 1970's. Fr. Austin Leger was the presiding priest at the time.
The small historic building with its original wood frame and hard-wood floors was moved from Dubison to its present day site in Whiteville in 1896. The Whiteville church property was donated by Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Savant, and the cemetery was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Campbell.
