From neworleanschurches.com and John DeMajo: An article in the New Orleans Times Picayune newspaper announced the official closing of Grace Episcopal Church on Canal Street effective January 5, 2012. The closing was announced by Bishop Morris Thompson. The church sustained major damage as a result of the Hurricane Katrina flooding, and membership had severely decreased.
