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.

Went here for a free Christmas gospel music concert. It was excellent. The streetcar will drop you off two blocks from the church. It is located just north of the French Quarter in the Treme neighborhood.

The volume, tone and choice of songs are just right in this bright church just one block beyond Rampart St. near the French Quarter. The celebrant also delivered a good sermon, and it is not necessary to be Roman Catholic to enjoy and appreciate this...More

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
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
