Surrounded by pictures of the before and after of the restoration of the Cathedral Basilica, friends, guests and clergy gathered at the Old Warson Country Club to celebrate the Cathedral Basilica Gala, hosted by the Friends of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. With its most recent project to repair and replace multiple windows, the more than 100-year-old building requires constant restoration and upkeep to maintain and preserve this architectural, historical and religious treasure.
