  • Beautiful Catholic church with incredible mosaic collection with over 7000 colors used. A wonderful place to catch your breath and reconnect spiritually.

  • You can still see the beauty of the church even during repair. I cannot wait till it is done and I can return to see it again. I just returned to this beautiful Church. I went to Mass 12:10pm. It is a Church with museum qualities. I managed to talk with one of the men working there and he told me some of the history of the Church. I could tell he was very proud to be a small part of this wonderful place. If you get a chance to see an elderly person there ask tbem about the Church and I will bet you also will get some great stories.
  • The Old Cathedral Museum, 209 Walnut St, St. Louis, MO 63102 is big and beautiful. It's another wonderful piece of the St. Louis history that you should really stop and appreciate.
  • Pretty church. Right by the arch.
  • Great church! Looks great for how old it is.
  • The Cathedral, is beautiful, my daughter & I went to 10'30 mass on Mothers Day. I was disappointed in the lack of flowers on the altar for mothers day two very simple green plants, the two men ushers for the offertory,wore shorts looked like they were going to a picnic. The only mention of Mothers Day was a very short blessing at the end of mass.The choir was beautiful, a shame they didn't sing several of the many beautiful songs written for the Blessed Mother
