This handsome brick Gothic church stands at the intersection of Salisbury and North Florrissant, two blocks west of Hyde Park.
It is currently vacant, and damage to its windows is beginning to accelerate its decay. Stained glass has already been lost, and more is in emminent danger. The church's remaining congregation meets in the smaller, more practical building next door.
