We passed by in the late afternoon and it was closed. The next day we passed by earlier and went in for the noon mass. WOW!
We walked to Saint Patrick's on a rainy Saturday afternoon and were not disappointed. The cathedral is small but incredibly detailed and a great example of the gothic style. We snuck in between services so didn't stay too long, but there is plenty to view from a seat in the pew. Worth the walk if you like cathedrals, stained glass,... More
The ceiling and stained glass are beautiful. Many wonderful features to see; don’t go when Mass is being held because they ask you to not take pictures then. Check the schedule before you go.

I couldn't find any on their website, nor is there any information on the front. I... More
This stunning, gothic church was built by the Irish in New Orleans so they could worship in English. The exterior is awe-inspiring and the interior a work of art.
We arrived at the church just as it opened for the day and we were awed as we entered the building. It is breathtaking to say the least! The stained glass, the old statues of the saints, the altar.....I could go on and on. We enjoyed the peace, tranquility and beauty of the church as we knelt in prayer. St.... More
