Photos of Saint John the Baptist Church, in Saint Louis, Missouri

Here are photos of Saint John the Baptist Church, in Saint Louis, Missouri, located about six road miles southwest of downtown Saint Louis, Missouri.



This Italianate church was dedicated in 1925.

The parish has both an elementary and a high school.



Mosaic over the front door.



The nave.

According to the 2006 parish census, this church has approximately 2,457 parishoners.

The door into the narthex was open, but the door to the nave remained locked. These are photos taken through the plate-glass door.

Note: since this photo was taken, the nave has been restored to its original design. I hope to provide photos later!



Main altar.



The church is just down the block from the Bevo Mill, a restaurant which opened in 1917.

Since this posting, the church has undergone renovations:  click for newer photos.

4200 Delor Street
Saint Louis, Missouri 63116

  1. Hi there. Nice photos of St. John the Baptist, which is a neighboring parish to my own. I know the pastor there -- Fr. Eddie Rice -- who is a wonderful example of the priesthood. He is vibrant, humorous, energetic, full of life, and a delightful personality. He presided recently over the funeral of a long-time mutual friend of ours, Fr. Marvin Kopff, and his homily was truly inspired. Can't say enough good things about him. God bless him and St. John the Baptist parish and school.
