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.

The beauty of St. Alphonsus will leave you speechless! Rather unassuming outside, once you enter those doors it a an entirely different world. The area can be a bit sketchy so be aware but don't let it stop you from seeing this magnificent edifice.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking

brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
