Parish Background

The parish was founded in 1887 by Carpatho-Rusyn immigrants from the Slovakian region of the Austro-Hungarian empire.  The present church building was constructed in 1905.  Fr Alexis Toth, the first parish priest, was canonized in 1994.  The education building is across the street from the church.

Cathedral Restoration
Comprehensive building inspections were performed on the historic 100 year old Cathedral and the Parish Center in 2003.  These inspections indicated that major repairs to the Cathedral were badly needed; including replacement of the original copper roof and the main dome windows, waterproofing of the entire foundation, repairs to the bell tower/steeple, and upgrading of the attic electrical wiring to meet code.

A multi-million dollar Capital Campaign was commenced in fall 2004 towards restoring the historic Cathedral to its original condition and beauty.  To date, parishioners have made personal commitments totaling $2.7 million to the restoration project.  Loans from parishioners and a bank have been obtained for the additional funding required.  Restoration work is currently being done and is scheduled for completion in fall 2006.

We invite all of our friends to share our passion for the preservation of this historic Cathedral.  Please consider making a financial contribution to the St. Mary’s Cathedral Capital Campaign.  Gifts may be sent to the Cathedral Office at 1701 Fifth Street NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413.  Thank you for your consideration and good will.
