It gives me great pleasure as Rector to welcome you to the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis with the largest collection of mosaics in the world outside Russia.  The interior collectively contains 41.5 million tesserae pieces that make up the many mosaics that teaches the faith.

The Cathedral Basilica is a manifestation of the Church's mission to invite all who visit here to open their hearts to welcome Jesus.  It is my hope that everyone who visits or attends Mass at the Basilica will be drawn into a deeper love of Jesus Christ.

This website is intended to be the virtual door to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. I invite you to explore the different ways that you can get involved in our Cathedral community: sign up for our email updates, join our Facebook fan page or take a moment to pray while lighting a virtual candle online. 

On behalf of our clergy, religious, staff, and volunteers of the Cathedral Basilica, we hope that your visit online will inspire you to plan a visit onsite! We look forward to welcoming you!

May God bless you abundantly.

Sincerely in Christ,

Breier Signature

Reverend Monsignor Henry Breier

Rector
