Past & Present
Constructing St. Louis
Historians believe that Masqueray was particularly fond of the building he called his "little gem."

The present Church of Saint Louis was built in 1909, the third site of worship established by the French Canadians in the river town of St. Paul.

Designed by renowned French architect Emmanuel Masqueray, the extraordinary attributes of the Church of Saint Louis have become more cherished with each generation.

Though Masqueray designed structures with more grandeur, such as the Cathedral of St. Paul, historians believe that he was particularly fond of the building he called his "little gem."
