The Church on Dauphine Street explores a miracle after tragedy struck in New Orleans. This is a story about Father Joseph Benson, a Northern Irish-man, and Arthine Vicks, an ex-Marine fluent in American Sign Language: two unlikely allies working to reunite one of New Orleans’ most unusual, most independent congregations. Their church is home to the city’s deaf Catholics and many Spanish-speaking immigrants, making it tri-lingual. But more than anything this is a story about home and the mysterious, powerful allure of New Orleans.
