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.

We will be celebrating with a Parish Mass with Bishop Rice and picnic on the parish grounds on Sunday, August 26, 2018.  The St. Mary Grade School Alumni Association will host a Golf tournament, Saturday, August 25, 2018.

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