Officials from the Archdiocese of New Orleans held a ceremonial groundbreaking Wednesday morning to celebrate the launch of a $6.2 million renovation project at the historic St. Stephen Catholic Church on Napoleon Avenue.

The ceremony was led by Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond, Monsignor Christopher H. Nalty, and capital campaign chair Michael Riess.
