St. Boniface

Architect: Thomas W. Brady

Another church that faced emminent closure in 2005, St. Boniface is a local landmark in the Carondelet neighborhood, in the southernmost reaches of the city. The building and parish date back to 1860 and served the needs of German immigrants; the towers were completed later (1868 and 1890) and were once surmounted by taller, more elaborate cupolas. It is a handsome but simple building in a vaguely Romaneque style, reflecting the working class neighborhoods that still surround it to this day. The church is also the anchor of a Neighborhood Historic District listed on the National Register.

Final Mass was held on Sunday, June 26, 2005 11AM. The church building has since been converted into a performance and theater space.
