A tongue-in-cheek, lighthearted guide for the uninitiated into the culture and traditions that shaped New Orleans.
Rich in tradition, the Catholic faith has been a heavy influence on and unifying force of the culture and fabric of New Orleans from its inception. This book warm-heartedly recounts a light and sometimes-funny view of the city's churches, theology, schools, saints, weddings, funerals, and more.
