St. Liborius, St. Louis Place

St. Liborius, despite lacking its original steeple, is a sight to behold.

Perhaps one day, when the street is reborn, the steeple can be replaced, as it was in Washington, DC, in a similar style church.

The church once anchored what must have been a stunning streetscape, now almost completely obliterated or replaced with vinyl-sided houses that are already showing their age, 10-15 years after their construction. One day, I’m sure, St. Liborius will stare down the street at a new, and hopefully better built, generation of houses.

  1. I don't know if you're aware of this but the statuary behind the altar at Sacred Heart in Eureka, Missouri, came from St. Liborius. Father Anderson was the parish priest in Eureka when the new church was built and he was also in charge of the Archdiocesan warehouse where all the good old stuff is kept. Just in case your ever out this way and want to take a look.
