"Notable Landmark"
The Cathedral of St. Louis IX, King of France was first built in 1718, but became an established parish in 1720. The current cathedral is not the original, but a rebuilt expansion of the third version of the cathedral, built in 1789. In 1964, Pope John Paul II designated the cathedral as a Minor Basilica. The graceful beauty of the St. Louis Cathedral and its surrounding courtyards in the French Quarter makes it a sight to behold. Located on a bank of the Mississippi River, the cathedral is considered one of the greatest symbols of Catholicism on the North American continent.

Immaculate Conception Jesuit Church was built in 1930, but it is actually the second church of that name to stand in the same space. It is an almost identical replica to a church that was built there in the 1850s and later damaged by surrounding construction. It is notable for its Gothic Revival architecture. Inside, there are stained glass windows, an elaborate altar, and cast iron pews. It's easy to see why this church is a local landmark and a beautiful place to visit.

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.

Set in the New Orleans skyline is the gilded dome of this beautiful Church of Saint John the Baptist. Built in 1871, its most noteworthy features are the stained-glass windows crafted by artists in Munich, the Stations of the Cross, and the sacristy murals painted during and after the World War by Belgian artist Dom Gregory Dewit.

During an epidemic in 1867, a local priest prayed to St. Roch, the patron saint of plague victims. When everyone survived, a Gothic result was in order. There is a small room just off the altar where you may leave gifts (medical supplies or other symbols of healing). There is a collection of these items (sometimes bizarre) for public viewing. The chapel is not always open so you should call before visiting.

Saint Roch Cemetry and Chapel is a holy shrine created by Rev. Peter Leonard Thevis (a German priest) in honor of Saint Roch, the patron of good health. The beautiful chapel reflecting Gothic architecture was created to thank Saint Roch of eradicating the yellow fever epidemic that struck in 1876. Thereafter, none of the priest’s parish members died of yellow fever. Till today, believers visiting the chapel show their thankful gestures by leaving their personal objects such as crutches, braces, glass eyes, keys etc. The chapel also known as Campo Santo is a popular site of Good Friday worship.
