New Cathedral
St Louis

Work began on the "new" Cathedral at Lindell and Newstead on May 1, 1907. The cathedral was consecrated on June 29, 1926. Work on the interior and mosaics continued until 1988. The dome was inspired by Church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. In 1997, Pope John Paul II designated the cathedral as a basilica.
