Mission Statement

Cathedral Parish Mission Statement7ThreeDomesW

The Cathedral Parish is a community of Catholic believers drawn from this culturally diverse Central West End and from throughout the Archdiocese of Saint Louis. With the grace of God, the parish strives to nourish its members with inspiring and prayerful liturgy, to reach out to others in Christian love, and by the witness of our lives, the service of our ministries and the beauty of this Cathedral, to attract others to Jesus Christ and the Catholic Faith. All the while, as a Parish, we serve the spiritual and material needs of our economically and socially varied neighborhood, support a Catholic school promoting educational excellence and Christian virtues, and service a cathedral basilica church that expresses Catholic traditions in its grandeur and hospitality-welcoming and worshipping with Catholics and others from the Archdiocese, the nation and the world.
