The church was best known for being the site of a massacre by an aspiring priest, Sean O'Connell, who was driven to insanity by a witch's hex and brutally killed nine of his fellow seminary students before killing himself. The attic of the church was also used by Marcel Gerard as a residence and hide-out for Davina Claire following the failed first attempt at the Harvest ritual by the French Quarter Coven.

- St. Anne's Church was the setting of the massacre in which Sean O'Connell, Camille's twin brother killed his fellow seminary students before proceeding to kill himself. This is the second unprecedented slaughter to have occurred inside the church.
- Before his death, Sean worked here while he was training to be a priest.
- Father Kieran died here.
- Hope Mikaelson was born here.
- Hayley died as a werewolf in this church before awakening in transition as a hybrid after dying with her daughter's blood in her system.
- In 1914, Kol killed everyone in the church during Sunday services to ensure the death of a woman who was said to own the largest paragon diamond in New Orleans. They needed the diamond so that his witch associates, Mary-Alice Claire and Astrid Malchance could finally transform one of the silver daggers that neutralize Original vampires into a gold one that would work against Klaus.
- Finn Mikaelson was captured by Hayley and Cami in the church and handed over to Klaus and Elijah at the compound.
- In For the Next Millennium, Marcel has established a fight club for his new vampires in St. Anne's Church, with Elijah as his sparring companion.
- In The Bloody Crown, Vincent has reclaimed the church to use it as a sanctuary open up to any supernaturals who are tired of fighting.
- Given that many witches have violently died here, it is most likely that it is marked with their power, thus making it a magical hot-spot; a source of immense power.
- In Voodoo Child, the Hollow and her followers take over the church.
