Photos of Saint Agatha Church, in Saint Louis, Missouri

Here are photos of Saint Agatha church, in Saint Louis, Missouri, located about three miles southwest of the Old Cathedral in downtown, and about a half mile from the banks of the Mississippi River.

Saint Agatha's is located next to Interstate 55, and is just south of the Anheuser-Busch brewery, seen here in the background left. As this church has a very small natural parish, it is now home to the Polish-language apostolate. For many years, this was the location for the Archdiocesan's Indult Latin Mass.

I took this first photo in November, 2005. The rest were taken on October 29th, 2006.

  3. My daughter was married at St. Agatha's Church in 1996 because her great-great-grandfather was one of the original parishioners. Two of the church's beautiful windows were donated by our family "Haneklau", name located on bottom of window.
