The cornerstone was laid in 1891 by Archbishop Francis Janssens.The Carmelites, a Catholic Order of Cloistered nuns, was established in Antwerp, Belgium, by the Companions of St. Theresa of Jesus, and arrived in New Orleans in 1877. The nuns moved out of the complex in 1971, and sold it in 1975 to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans, which opened these buildings as a Catholic Charismatic retreat house, The Center of Jesus The Lord.
