Beautiful! Check out the ceiling and light a candle. Take in the serenity this church provides. Even for the non religious or non Catholic folk something to see.

We visited for Saturday Mass during Mardi Gras and were very impressed with the church. Always seen it from the outside, and will definitely be back the next time we visit New Orleans!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
