Join us for an in-depth tour of two of the earliest churches in St. Louis. First on our stop is Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet.

The original log cabin residence of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet was replaced in 1841 with a brick building and their mission expanded to educating the female students of the village of Carondelet. The tour of the motherhouse and chapel will conclude with a buffet lunch, which includes salad, a hot entrée, dessert, coffee or iced tea. Next, the tour moves to First Baptist Church. First Baptist Church traces its origin to the First African Baptist Church and the first Protestant congregation established for African Americans in St. Louis.
