“Beautiful. Go here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This house of worship was beautiful and welcoming to visitors of any religious background. It doesn't take much time to stop by and check it out. So, swing in!

“Outside the church before a Saturday night service music was heard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Between the cathedral and park the atmosphere lightened perceptibly when an old jazz blues singer and trumpeter with his guitar accompanist began to play and the beauty echoed off the buildings. It was a moment to cherish. A personal favorite of mine in New Orleans.
