“A Piece of Architecture That Will Amaze You”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

While in New Orleans last summer with the family. We spent some time admiring the St Louis Cathedral from across the street due to the massive size and amazing craftsmanship that makes up the cathedrals facade. It is very well kept in a neighborhood so full of excitement. It is an attraction that you will remember once you have left the French Quarter and are thinking back about all the interesting things you had seen on your visit to the French Quarter.

“Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We were in New Orleans as the Catholic Church received its first Francis, and a Jesuit to boot.

The cathedral honors the glory of God and creation. It's Johannine bent is wonderfully expressed everywhere, in art, Latin and French.

Take a moment to feed your spirit here.
