Mass Schedule

The St. Louis Cathedral, built over the foundations of a colonial 1727 church, has been the city's center of worship for more than 280 years. Today at the Cathedral, Mass is still celebrated daily.

Because of the Mass’ infinite value it is a time honored Catholic tradition to have Masses said for a particular person and to provide a Mass Card to comfort relatives, friends and loved ones. The Cathedral offers Masses for loved ones or friends, either living or deceased.
