Archdiocese of St. Louis

SNOW VS. WADE

Lisa Johnston | lisajohnston@archstl.org | @aeternusphoto About one thousand GenLifeSTL youths prayed at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis before marching in pilgrimage to pray at the Planned Parenthood facility on Forest Part Blvd. The procession was led by Archbishop Robert J. Carlson as the rosary way prayed. They then returned to the Cathedral for Mass.

In the end, the snow didn’t conquer. Life was victorious.

That was the message shared through the witness and energy of 1,000 teens who came to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis for a special Generation Life program hosted by the archdiocesan Catholic Youth Apostolate Jan. 23.

Magnificent cathedral basilica is reason to love St. Louis

The Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis was named among the “66 Reasons to Love St. Louis,” picked in no particular order in a campaign sponsored by Phillips 66.

Virginia and Bill Barella of Pittsburgh were in awe of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, and they weren't surprised about its most recent accolade.

"There are no words to describe this," Virginia Barella said as she and Bill looked around the cathedral basilica. She teaches a class in mosaic art at a craft store in Pittsburgh.

Archdiocese named among top 100 workplaces

The Archdiocese of St. Louis was recognized recently by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as a top workplace in St. Louis. Human resources assistant Nancy Svoboda gave newly hired network engineer Michael Sawyer a tour of the Cardinal Rigali Center on his first day of work. The Cardinal Rigali Center complex is a converted seminary building that houses curia staff and archdiocesan offices.

Michael Sawyer wheeled off Laclede Station Road onto Archbishop May Drive, then marveled at the beautiful edifice coming up on his right -- the Cardinal Rigali Center, formerly home of Kenrick Seminary and, as of June 29, his place of employment.

"This is probably the most beautiful building I've ever worked in, bar none; it's fantastic," said Sawyer, who worked in "some beautiful palaces" in a seven-month deployment to Afghanistan as part of a four-year hitch with the United States Army. "This is definitely the prettiest, by far."

Billboards spread message of peace

Six billboards from the Archdiocese of St. Louis are being placed around the metro area with a simple message: "Lord, make me an instrument of your peace."
