St. Mary of Victories Catholic Church
The National Register of Historic Places calls this church a landmark, locals call it a bakery, and Catholic members call it home. Founded in 1843, this church has since been redesigned into the splendorous form it still holds today. Thanks to the perfectly landscaped courtyard, the view outside is as marvelous as the cathedral itself. Proceeds from special events are given to the Friends of Historic St. Mary of Victories in order to assist with the community's needs.

A Visit to HISTORIC ST. MARY of VICTORIES CHURCH
By A Yahoo! Contributor, 11/2/04
HISTORIC ST. MARY of VICTORIES CHURCH is a remarkable church in Downtown St. Louis--and indeed anywhere! It literally is the "grandfather" of the St. Louis ethnic Catholic parishes--the first among them of any nationality (being both Hungarian and German), and it also boasts being the SECOND church in the city after the OLD CATHEDRAL nearby.
The church and its ornate interior were designed by pioneer architect GEORGE I. BARNETT and St. Louis' first professional church artist, PROF. MAX SCHNEIDERHAHN.
A DISTINCT INTERNATIONAL HONOR for this historic parish is the pending CANONIZATION by the VATICAN of a former parish priest from the 1860's, FATHER FRANCIS X. SEELOS, C.SS.R., a pioneer missionary/evangelist who is responsible for two recent miracles resulting in the documented miraculous health cures for both an American child and adult.
AN OUTSTANDING HISTORIC PIONEER CHURCH offering excellence in early church art, national and local church history, AND the story of the second canonized saint from St. Louis, FATHER SEELOS (along with delicious gourmet Hungarian foods and pastries on the third Sunday of each month!)
WHAT a SPIRITUALLY and CULTURALLY AWESOME PLACE! Be sure to visit it on your trip to Downtown St. Louis.
