I visited here recently and was made very welcome by Nancy the administrator then Fr. Gary. The church is located right in the hotel district and is signed on North 2nd Street with details of church services. The interior is beautiful with many carvings.

Beautiful okld style church with many modern touches. The parrish is mainly made up of those living downtown and those who come to church from all around the city. Ths services are most lovingly presented in a true Catholic tone.

It's nearly 150 years old. The interior is so beautiful-- with carved wood altars and wonderful statues. There is a grotto inspired by the special one in Lourdes, France.

This is a Memphis Catholic landmark. It is a beautiful old church with a Our Lady of Lourdes grotto inside the church. It is also the oldest soup kitchen in the United States going back to the 1860's or 70's.
