Cathedral of St. Helena

Before we left on our Land That We Love Tour I noticed there was a cathedral in Helena, Montana. After we toured  the Capitol and had our meal in downtown Helena we used our phone google map to find the cathedral.

The Cathedral of St. Helena was constructed at the turn of the century during the episcopate of Bishop John Carroll. It is an outstanding example of Geometric Gothic architecture, patterned after the Votive Church of the Sacred Heart in Vienna, Austria. The majestic twin spires rise 230 feet above the street.

The outside today and I’ll share the amazing interior on another day. We were happy to find the front door of the cathedral open.

  1. This is stunning! I kept going back to the first picture to see where things were, the cross, the statues, (saints?) so much detail. And even the back of it, the lines and the various shapes, the color of the roof, I bet you had a blast photographing this! I can’t wait to see the inside!
