St. John the Baptist Catholic Church Featured on The Advocate

Excerpt from The Advocate

In designing St. John’s, Ritter Maher studied the verticality of churches in New Orleans as well as Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Mercy in Baton Rouge before deciding upon a neogothic style that will have 491/2-foot ceilings versus the 30-foot ceiling St. John’s has now.

“It’s an impressive piece of millwork that is nearly three stories, if you can imagine.”
– Steve Maher, principal at Ritter Maher
