We came to New Orleans about 4 years ago and on Palm Sunday we looked for a Catholic Church which happened to be near out hotel. The procession was magnificent and brought back so many childhood memories. This year, by chance, we came for the Mardi Gras and to make a special visit to St Patrick's church for Ash Wednesday....

This is the church we always went to when visiting our daughter and family the 10 years they lived in New Orleans. The Church is beautiful inside and we enjoyed going to Mass there. It's on Camp St, in the CBD near several hotels. We always stayed at the Renaissance Arts Hotel on Tchoupitoulas which is just a short walk... More

Great acoustics. Beautiful stain glass. The latin mass is unforgetable. It's our go-to church before we head to Saints games.

Take the time to walk through this beautiful church. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city so it is not out of the way.

5:30 pm Mass on Sunday evening is nice. Just a lovely place and a short walk from most of the hotels on the Riverfront.

Stopped here while traveling for a Monday daily mass (held at 11:30am and 12-noon, both 30-minute daily masses). This is a very traditional styled Catholic mass, with a streamlined service - no music, lots of Latin and very solemn. It was a short, beautiful daily mass in a breathtakingly beautiful sanctuary space. Wanted to make the Gregorian Mass (latin mass)... More

It took me a few tries to get inside, having to attend the end of a mass to do so, but it was worth it. The head of the church has three amazing murals, with a nice stained glass dome at the top. Everyone inside was very nice and didn't mind me taking pictures. If staying in the convention center... More

This was the most beautiful mass I have ever been to. The chanting, the reverence, and the message was a perfect way to start a Sunday!

My husband and I were able to sneak a peek at this beautiful landmark after Good Friday services ended. What a gem. This place has been very well taken care of. The stained glass above the high alter is breathtaking. I would recommend a visit.
