This church… this place. The moment you step in, the hush comes over you like a soft wave. Every element absolutely stunning. The floors, the ceilings, the paintings and altar. Did we mention the ceiling? Overwhelming and astonishing doesn’t describe the pure beauty of the...More

Had Sunday mass in the French Quarter along with the Prince of France - makes for a perfect day in NOLA! The cathedral is amazing and nightime shines even brighter with the silouette against the outer wall. one of a kind!

It's a beautiful building and something you can appreciate from all walks of life. Religion aside, the building itself is breath taking and very well maintained.

This is a must see stop through the Quarter. The interior is simple and elegant. Walking through the door on a nice, warm day will take you from the 'craziness' of the Quarter to the hushed reverence of a church.

We took a moment to step inside this beautiful cathedral. From the architecture to the stained glass windows, it was exhilarating, to say the least. The art work was impeccable. It had a very peaceful and solemn ambience magnified by the reverent accoustics played lowly...More

It is breathtakingly beautiful, both on the inside and out. As soon as you walk in, you can feel that you're in a special place. The pictures don't do it justice...you must visit.

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

Are masses held during the week? If so, what time? My dentist mentioned attending a concert there on a Sunday evening last December. Will there be one this coming Sunday, May 21st? (Our only Sunday in NOLA)

Do you need any tickets to go to mass? Is it crowded on Christmas Day? How about midnight mass?

No tickets are needed just getting there early enough to get a seat. 10 p,m, for midnight mass.
I see from the website that the Cathedral is open from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., are the gift shop hours the same? Thanks.

Went by the Cathedral yesterday. The Gift Shop is open from 10- 3. As it is run by volunteers, it is usually closed from noon to one for lunch. Hope this helps.
