Welcome to the website for the Basilica of Saint Louis, King… the Parish of St. Louis fondly known as the Old Cathedral. Thanks for visiting!

Since its inception in 1770, the Old Cathedral has played an important role in the lives of the people of St. Louis. To its parishioners and the thousands who visit each year, it serves as a special place for spiritual nourishment, comfort, learning and civic life.

We thank God every day for the inspiration the Old Cathedral has been for those who visit… for those who kneel in the quiet of this community treasure opening their hearts to God, and leaving comforted and refreshed.
