Though not very far west. The church is beautiful and there is a very nice organ that is played at most masses.

We were visiting at noon and attended mass. Stark contrast to the newer Basilica, the Old Cathedral has historical significance and a beautiful sense of calm. So glad we stopped on our visit to St. Louis!

I stopped by this quaint, beautiful little church during the week after visiting the Arch. I said a few prayers, took and few pictures and left feeling better then before I came. You can light a candle for a $3 donation. It’s worth a stop.

We accidentally bumped on this cute Church while detouring our way from the Old Courthouse to the Arch. It's the oldest one in St. Louis, small but very nice.

We were fortunate to be able to visit this beautiful church on the Mississippi. Don't walk by on your way to the more popular attractions. Stop for a moment of peace in this beautiful church.

Absolutely beautiful. The architecture and the paintings were breathtaking. Light a candle and say prayer.

The Old Cathedral is tucked away, right next to the Gateway Arch, and the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial/Old Courthouse, and is well worth the visit. It boasts a perfectly preserved interior and exterior - one can feel the history within this little church, and get...More
