A National Historic Landmark, Old St. Patrick's Church is one of only two early landmarks of distinction left in Lafayette Square, the other being Gallier Hall. Irish immigrants built the Gothic-style church in 1840 to rival the French St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square.

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!

Had the opportunity to attend the noon Mass here on Wednesday after our brunch at Red Gravy and on our way to the WWII Museum. I advised my wife to pack her mantilla. 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.

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.
