St. Mary's Assumption Church is a National Historic Landmark. The church was completed in 1860, built for the swelling German Catholic immigrant population in the Lower Garden District section of the city . St. Mary's Assumption is home to a shrine for Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, a German priest who came to the United States to minister to German-speaking immigrants. Fr. Seelos died while serving as the pastor at St. Mary's Assumption: after visiting and caring for the victims of yellow fever, he succumbed to the disease himself in 1867. In recognition of his virtuous life, Fr. Seelos was beatified by the Roman Catholic Church in 2000.
