The Cathedral Parish: Celebrating 175 Years

Our Parish – 175 Years . . .

On November 1, All Saints Day, 1841, Father Lucien Galtier celebrated the first Mass in our first parish church, the Chapel of Saint Paul in Pig’s Eye/Saint Paul. Before that chapel was a cathedral, it was the home of the first parish in what is now the City of Saint Paul.
