Photos of Holy Innocents Church

This is one of the churches closing July 1st in the southside deanery of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis. This church is situated on Kingshighway Boulevard, a major thoroughfare and is facing historic Tower Grove Park. It is a unique squared-off classical design of the kind that was popular until the advent of iconoclastic modernism.

  1. I actually went to school and church there from 1984-1995. I was sad when I heard that it was closing. I wanted one day to be able to take mey kids there and shoe them that this is where I went to school at.
