Friends of the Cathedral Basilica

Help preserve a masterpiece…

The Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis is a masterpiece of art and history.  It rivals the grandest Cathedrals in the world.  Artisans, craftsmen, stonecutters, and masons spent almost a century creating this incomparable church.  The Cathedral is unparalleled triumph and we must safeguard its legacy for the future.

The Friends of the Cathedral Basilica is a group of people dedicated to preserving this work of art for centuries.  This mission of the Friends of the Cathedral Basilica is to provide the needed funds to maintain the artwork of the Cathedral, and also to continue our educational outreach program that provides informational tours to the many thousand school children and visitors who come to see the Cathedral Basilica annually.

Please consider joining the Friends of the Cathedral Basilica.  Your dollars are crucial to preserving this architectural, historical, and religious treasure.  Being a friend also has many benefits.  Members receive discounts in the gift shop, free tours of the Cathedral, and free admission to the Mosaic Museum, as well as invitations to special events.
