“Breathtaking beauty”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Recently attended a wedding and had never been in this church even though I live in St Louis. WOW...........beautifu! It is hard to believe at one point they were going to tear down this church! The chuch has great history and the restoration work is beautiful!

Perfect for a special wedding location or perhaps a special mass for a family celebration.

It is the most beautiful and historical. Have been to many weddings there. Historical and fantastic. Park in private parking area. Not the best part of town.

It's a beautiful, restored old church. I received a lot of inspiration attending mass there when I was going through cancer.

“Beautiful old church, rehabbing continues.”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Beautiful old church where miracles occurred in process of declaring sainthood of ; Another priest was martyred here also. All of the work and funding of rehabbing comes from volunteers and visitors from around the world. When St. Louis was a bustling city, downtown workers came to daily Mass here. Visit on Sun. After 1030 Mass, volunteer presentation on history and art of the church/
