Have visited this Church a few time including for processions during the Easter Season and for St. Josephs Alters. A beautiful peaceful environment.

We got married here. It is a beautiful church in a great neighborhood. If you are in the area for St. Joseph's Day, they put on one of the most spectacular alters!

St. Joseph Church in Gretna is over 175 years old, but was renovated back to its original beauty in the last 20 years or so. This is my parish church and it is one of the more popular ones for weddings in the greater New Orleans area because of its beauty. My own daughter married here five years ago. The... More

Mass is 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30 on Sundays. The church was designed by a German architect that was well known in New Orleans.... More

I liked this church because the mass was only 45 minutes. It was a very beautiful church with intricate designs and statues. If you are in the area, stop by and attend the mass. Take time to pray and light a candle in the worship spaces.
