Under the shady oaks of South Carrollton Avenue, Mater Dolorosa Catholic Church stands out as a Christian marvel. Over 100 years old, the church is an enduring testament to the Catholic faith. Adorned with breathtaking artwork, the faith is proclaimed with brush and chisel.

The congregation of Mater Dolorosa is its true treasure: the family of God loving each other to worship Jesus Christ as their one and only Messiah.  Proclaiming the Gospel (the Good News), it stands as a beacon of light in the City of New Orleans and the world. That proclamation is achieved by word, example, prayer and faith.

The Christian family of Mater Dolorosa wishes to send out an invitation: "Everyone is welcome in our Father's house. We wish to be for the lonely, the tired and the forgotten, a sanctuary of healing. For the brave, the strong and the willing, we wish to be a calling."

Pastor: Rev. Herbert J Kiff, Jr.
