This is a beautiful Catholic Church in New Orleans. We happened to walk in during a mass and got to experience a bit of New Orleans at prayer, especially at the end when the priest said a special prayer for safety from hurricanes! That was really special. Stop in for a visit, to say a prayer or enjoy mass with... More

Beautiful church near many hotels and the WWII museum. It just happened to be close to the hotel I was staying at so I decided to go to Sunday afternoon mass there. I did not expect it to be a stunning church, but it really was! I had heard of another church to visit while in New Orleans but not... More

This is a beautiful church and remarkable example of architecture and construction during an important era. The church is amazing and the overall experience was great. The church stands as a key landmark for the importance of people gathering to worship and address spiritual needs. The Lord continues to allow and provide ministry through this church to lots of people... More

This lovely old church is quintessential New Orleans. It is well worth a few minutes of your time to stop in and cool off.

We always enjoy attending Holy Mass in this beautiful church. This is a very traditional Roman Catholic Church, in the heart of town. You will find traditional architecture and a completely reverent sacrifice of the Mass. Kneeling at the rail for Holy Communion! Definitely not effected by the modernist trends!

Some women but not all had them on. Also the first time since pre Vatican 2 taking the host while kneeling at the Communion rail.Beautiful church and... More

I came to Mass here on Corpus Christi Sunday and it was one of the most beautiful celebrations of this feast I've ever attended! They had a long, beautiful procession with the Blessed Sacrament with incense, rose petals, candles, huge loud hymns & a vibrant Catholic community of faith! Mass was afterwards which was also uplifting! So happy I was... More

I took pictures but they just look like the ones already posted as the church isn't that big, but very pretty old architecture and leaded windows. We stopped in just for a few minutes on our way to the contempary Arts Museum.

Went to a wedding last weekend in St. Patricks. The church is very beautiful. It is a must see if you have the time to go.
