CATHOLIC ST. LOUIS: A PICTORIAL HISTORY

 

William B. Faherty SJ Teams with Photographer

Mark Abeln to Capture Regional Catholic Heritage

 

 

ST. LOUIS, MO—The history of the Catholic Church in St. Louis is dominated by strong personalities and architectural grandeur. In Catholic St. Louis: A Pictorial History, rich text and photography capture the people and places that have defined Catholicism in a historic, and historically Catholic, city. Renowned historian William Barnaby Faherty, S.J., delivers concise historical sketches of the integral people and the landmark houses of worship; and photographer Mark Scott Abeln captures nearly forty different area churches in majestic fashion. From the eighteenth-century Holy Family Church in Cahokia to the overwhelming Cathedral Basilica to the modern St. Anselm’s in Creve Coeur, St. Louis’s churches are significant, not to mention spectacular. This coffee-table book truly presents Catholic St. Louis in all its splendor.

            Look for Catholic St. Louis in bookstores and online. Information is available upon request at jstevens@reedypress.com or (314) 644-3400.
