As usual the Catholics are long winded ( 65% Catholic in NOLA) but the service was great and the music fabulous especially the woman sax player. This old Treme church is beautiful and the West African priest does a mean sermon.

their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
