Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. – Mother Teresa The St. Louis Cathedral is the oldest Catholic cathedral in the United States, and is located in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This stunning structure sits facing Jackson Square and the Mississippi River. St. Louis Cathedral survived Hurricane Katrina; however, she did tear a hole in it’s roof and water damaged the pipe organ which was later rebuilt. The St. Louis Cathedral features a statue of Jesus, and at night, you can see his breathtaking shadow appear on the back. Jackson Square is a historic park that sits in front of the St. Louis Cathedral. In 1803, this was the site where Louisiana was made part of the United States territory through the Louisiana purchase.Today, this beautiful park is home to local artisans selling their creations, and of course, amazing jazz performers! Snapped this picture of Tuba D honking his sousaphone at Sheena! While the band was performing, I did a Facebook live so this video isn’t great, but at least you can hear the amazing music we heard!
