Hallowed Halls of Greater New Orleans:
Historic Churches, Cathedrals and Sanctuaries
6:30pm Tuesday, 11 March 2014
From New Orleans to the Northshore, stately churches, grand cathedrals and rustic chapels act as coffers for generations of history and devotion. Dedicated to deep-seated traditions, and Louisiana’s allegiance to its European roots, the state is divided into parishes rather than counties. Follow Deborah Burst as she explores the defiant spirit of early parishioners battling disease, pestilent weather and economic depression in building their heavenly havens. Meet today’s faithful followers who reverently serve and protect the church, along with preservationists who pass the spiritual torch from one generation to the next.
Deborah Burst is a freelance writer and photographer who has published more than 800 articles, earning eighteen writing/photography awards in the last nine years.

Free and open to the public, 6:30pm Tuesday, 11 February 2014, at our new and improved, recently reopened, freshly repaired, better-than-new, renovated original Carnegie library at 725 Pelican Avenue, New Orleans LA 70114.
