I was surprised to find that this was a Catholic gospel church. The parish was very welcoming. This music was wonderful.

As usual the Catholics are long winded ( 65% Catholic in NOLA) but the service was great and the music fabulous especially the woman sax player. This old Treme church is beautiful and the West African priest does a mean sermon.

that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
