A grandly baroque church that also happens to be where Fr. Francis Seelos, the hero of the yellow fever epidemic of 1867, lies buried.

Such a beautiful church. A true gem in the Garden District. I wish we would have been able to take in an actual mass but walking in and seeing the beauty with my own eyes was well worth it.

My husband and I attended mass here and it was just beautiful. The church community was welcoming and the history interesting. I visited the shrine to Father Seelos as well and found his history worth reading more about.
