The Old Cathedral on the St. Louis riverfront is one of the oldest churches west of the Mississippi. Built in 1834, the Cathedral was recently raised to the status of a Minor Basilica of the Roman Catholic Church. Pope John the XXIII officially designated the Old Cathedral as the "Basilica of St. Louis the King", in 1961.
