The church tower of St. Mary’s Assumption church is in desperate need of tuck pointing, masonry work, repaired louvers and screening as well as repairing the damage done by termites, weather and old age. The cross that proudly sat atop it for 150 years was shattered several years ago by lightening and is now gone. The restoration of our church tower will address not only the issues already mentioned but restoring the tower’s four sided clock and re-mounting its two bells aptly named Pius and Gabriel. The estimated cost for all work is approximately $970,000. We currently have almost $460,000 and have a good basis for receiving help with tax credits once the bell tower project is complete.

The church tower is more than part of our church. It tower serves as an anchor for the neighborhood, a symbol of hope in an area (the River Garden area of the Irish Channel) which has experienced the challenges of poverty and the continual cycles of life, death and new life. Since 2008, when we celebrated the 150th anniversary of the building of St. Mary’s Assumption Church, we have been especially mindful of our ancestors, including Blessed Francis Seelos whose shrine is in the church, who have filled St. Mary’s with their spirit and faith. They have given us this gift. We will honor their memory and their spirit by handing this gift on to future generations. As our immigrant ancestors built St. Mary’s Assumption Church for us, may we preserve it for future generations.

We call upon all people of good will and especially those who have over the years looked to our church and its schools as a sign of hospitality, faith, education, or comfort to humbly answer our need for help.

We greatly appreciate all gifts, regardless of the amount. You can make a donation by credit card (Just press “Donate Now”) or you can send a check to St. Alphonsus Parish/St. Mary’s Assumption Church “Save the Tower Restoration Fund” 2030 Constance Street New Orleans, LA 70130.

For those who wish to take this opportunity to memorialize their gift the chart that is above will give you some guidance. If you wish to do so please indicate how your want your gift to be listed. Gifts can be paid over one year.

Thanks so very much for your help!
