A lovely old church. It is co-located with the Old Ursaline Convent. The tour was to be self-guided, but there was a lady there, perhaps a volunteer and she pointed out many things we would not have known..such as the beautiful ceiling was discovered when a deteriorating ceiling was removed and underneath was the lovely ceiling you see today.

The church itself is beautiful inside. Decorated in classic Roman Catholic style, very relaxing and peaceful. Attached to church, is the actual shrine of Fr. Francis Xavier Seelos. There you can see his coffin and a nice statue seated on a bench, begging for an Instagram selfie ;) Across the courtyard from the church is a visitors, information, exhibit area... More

The beauty of St. Alphonsus will leave you speechless! Rather unassuming outside, once you enter those doors it a an entirely different world. The area can be a bit sketchy so be aware but don't let it stop you from seeing this magnificent edifice.

This church is truly beautiful. My wife and I went to Mass there on the recomendation of a tour guide. The church is constructed of the most wonderful brickwork and the interior is magnificent, especially the altar with its massive reredos depicting the assumption of the Virgin Mary. The church is beautifully decrepit in that New Orleans sort of way.... More
