Saint Paul, Minnesota: Cathedral of St. Paul (National Pilgrimage Site of the Apostle Paul)

 

About the Cathedral of Saint Paul:

The Cathedral is the seat of the Diocese of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, and one of the few National Shrines in the U.S.A. The waves of immigrants that flooded into Minnesota in the late 19th and early 20th centuries brought many Catholics to the area, and their influence is reflected in the various shrines surrounding the sanctuary.  These shrines honor saints who were important to the many different ethnic communities that helped to build the Cathedral that you see today.  In addition, the Cathedral has beautiful stained glass windows that make it an architectural wonder.

The parish hosts a regular organ concert series showcasing the Cathedral’s two Skinner organs. The Minnesota Orchestra and Vocal Essence are some of the groups that present concerts at the Cathedral each year.

Tours of the magnificent Cathedral of Saint Paul are held every Tuesday through Friday at 1:00 p.m. Tours are free of charge, though donations are gratefully received, and we encourage you to be generous to help with the preservation of the Cathedral. There are no tours on Holy Days and civil holidays.
