The city of New Orleans was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Unfortunately, many parishioners were unable to leave the city and the St. Peter Claver Church has sustained significant damage. The Society of Saint Edmund took over the administration of St. Peter Claver in 1984 and the ministry has grown remarkably under the leadership of Fr. Michael Jacques. The parish is known for its energetic liturgies with a magnificent gospel choir and the social outreach ministry to area residents.
