Although Our Lady Of The Gulf officially falls outside of the New Orleans area, it is of historical significance both because of its proximity to New Orleans, and because many New Orleanians frequented the Bay St. Louis area. Many families possessed or rented summer homes on the coast and therefore attended and supported this church. Additionally, the presence of Catholic boarding schools, operated by the Sisters of St. Joseph and the Brothers of The Sacred Heart, drew many children of New Orleans families, and their visiting parents, to this beautiful church. We have decided to include it because it will certainly be recognized by many of our viewers.
