Notre Dame Seminary 2

The Notre Dame Seminary was completed in 1923. The corner stone was laid May 7, 1922. The Notre Dame Seminary is Graduate School of Theology for the Catholic Church. The Campus is not often seen bu tourist but the wonderful buildings stand out and should be a showcase for New Orleans. It often looks like a European Palace. It is a one of a kind….

Notre Dame Seminay 1

From its establishment as a free-standing seminary in 1923 by the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Notre Dame Seminary has as its primary mission the preparation of men for the ministerial priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church. The seminary, through an integrated and balanced program of priestly formation, seeks to prepare competent pastors for the Church in the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd. Additionally, in order to foster a broader outreach in service to the needs of the local Church, the seminary offers educational and formational opportunities to other applicants.

It’s Carnival Time in New Orleans, The Magazine Street Parades

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

Fan Girl on Magazine

     This past Sunday I had some time and decided to walk over to Magazine Street to watch several parades. It’s a great place to watch parades. It is a family affair. Got tired and just sat on the front steps of a home. It was not crowded. Everyone was super nice.

    One thing I learned is that it pays to watch parades in different place so you can really get the neighborhood feel. In 3 blocks I saw 4-5 people that I knew. Guess we all wanted to watch the parades at the starting point on Jefferson Avenue. I will be there again…

New Orleans Warehouse District, The Stage Door Canteen at the World War II Museum

Warehouse District,Stage Door Canteen

    Last week I was invited to a treat at lunch time to visit the Stage Door Canteen for a show. Bob Hope’s daughter was the guest of honor along with all the Veterans that came.

    The World War II Museum has become a destination for many that visit New Orleans. I sell a lot of condos in the Warehouse District and walk by the Museum many times over the past 10 years. It is always bigger and better each and everytime. It’s a must see venue when in New Orleans….

 

     The Victory Belles put on a great show. My father was in the U.S. Army from 1941 unit 1963 when we moved to New Orleans. He never really talked much about the war. He did receive several bronze stars and a Purple Heart fighting in the Pacific conflict. He was also in the Korean War.  He would have been 100 years old this year. Hats off to all these guys who risked their lives for our Freedom and Safety….

Christ Church Cathedral on St. Charles Avenue, Gothic Design 1887

Monday, September 7th, 2015

St. Charles Ave. Church 1

    This English Gothic church completed in 1887 has steeply pitched gables, an architectural detail that was a precursor to the New Orleans Victorian style. The cathedral is the oldest non–Roman Catholic church in the Louisiana Purchase: the congregation was established in 1805. Jefferson Davis was among its parishioners, and the altar from his home is at the church, as is the grave of Confederate general Leonidas Polk. Visitors are welcome to walk into the main building when daily services are not in session.

     The Church is located at 2919 St. Charles Avenue on the corner of Seventh Street. One of many gems you can see on the St. Charles streetcar line.

Steps to Mississippi

     Always a draw for photo taking is the Mississippi River as it moves in and out of New Orleans. Here is just a few of what I have captured over the past couple of years. The Mississippi River is a draw for tourist and locals.  That is why we are getting more access to the river.

My walk through the New Orleans Garden District this weekend….Some Beautiful Large Historic Homes

Big Garden District Home in New Orleans

Garden District Yard

Garden District Mansion

    This weekend’s walk was about 530 pm on a Saturday afternoon. I had just been to see a client in the French Quarter where it was extremely crowded. I decide to park and get out and walk while there was still some nice light for photographs.  I ran into several tour groups but that was about it.

     These are all the very large homes that caught my eye. Its easy to see why this area of New Orleans is called the Garden District. I had been in the one pictured above and it is like 3 homes totaling over 8000 sq. ft. of living on a very large lot. At the time it was a second home for an out of state couple. Hard to believe but true….
