St. Rose of Lima Church on Bayou Road remains an unmarked nexus point in the history of New Orleans. St. Rose is in the process of becoming a theater space, and it’s important to take this opportunity to reflect on the significance of that structure and its history. After a year of pursuing research around the site and two figures whose lives orbited around St. Rose—Andre Cailloux and Father Claude Pascal Maistre—I’m prepared to create a permanent monument at the church.
