During 2018 we celebrate our 150th Anniversary as a Parish.  Built in 1868 St. Mary Cathedral has a long history of serving Catholic families in Southeast Missouri.  We invite you to check out our picture pages, history pages and videos below.

Also come back to this page to see updates on Celebration Events during 2018. 

If you would like to help us with our Celebration, please contact Fr. Allan Saunders, Pastor of St. Marys.
