Christ Church Cathedral
Tour Trinity Lutheran Church in the Soulard neighborhood. Founded in
1839, Trinity is the mother church of the Missouri Synod Lutheran
Church, and is the oldest Lutheran church west of the Mississippi River.
Visit the interesting sanctuary of St. Raymond’s Maronite Catholic
Church. Afterwards, enjoy a delicious lunch at St. Raymond’s.
The buffet line will have mouth-watering entrees and dessert
choices. It is downtown St. Louis’ favorite Wednesday lunch spot. Visit
Christ Church Cathedral. Episcopal services were first held there in
1867. The stained glass windows were created by many different artists,
and the gorgeous stone reredos was sculpted by Harry Hems of England.
Visit the sanctuary of St. Alphonsus Liguori Catholic Church (the
“Rock” Church). This was the first big stone church in St. Louis. The
magnificent stained glass windows are the finest work of Franz Mayer and
Co. of Munich. Marvel at the largest collection of mosaics in the
world at the Basilica of St. Louis the King (The New Cathedral). This
early 1900s stunning Byzantine church interior leaves one speechless.
