Regarding St. Patrick's. St. Patrick's Church on Camp Street was constructed for the Irish immigrants and other non-Creole Catholics who felt that St. Louis Cathedral catered only to the French and Spanish. The Americans may not have had the pedigree of the Creoles, but they usually had a lot more money.
