The Friends of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis have kicked off a fund-raising drive to restore the cathedral basilica’s 262 historic pews. The campaign goal is $375,000.
Donors can "adopt" an entire pew for $1,500 or half a pew for $750. Pope Paul VI called the cathedral basilica "the most beautiful church in the New World."
The Friends organization works to maintain the historic Central West End edifice. To help or for more information, call Ann Richardson at (314) 373-8240.
