St. Alphonsus Catholic Church was built in 1855 to serve the needs of the Irish Catholic immigrants who began settling in the neighborhood in the 1840s. In 1979, the church was closed. After a continuing fall into decline, FOSA was formed in 1990; in 1996, the building was declared a National Historic Landmark. With glorious, yet deteriorating, ceiling frescos and stained glass windows over a century old, the building is breathtakingly beautiful and has been featured in several television shows and movies… and the acoustics rock!
Enjoy fabulous music with your friends and support one of New Orleans’ cultural treasures, the 155 year-old Saint Alphonsus Church. We will see you next season for Fun Under the Frescoes!
