The Catholic community in New Orleans was well established and consisted of the French-speaking Creoles. This community did not welcome the new Irish immigrants who were also Catholic with open arms. The need for a Irish Catholic Church was addressed by St. Patrick's Catholic Church which was built in 1833. The Gothic church has beautiful interiors with crisscrossing arched ceiling, stained glass windows and beautiful murals. Visit this sanctity to offer your prayers or simply enjoy the tranquil surroundings of this place.
