July 2022 OldStF Shrine Flood
In July 2022, record rainfall fell in the STL area and flooded the convent, church, rectory, and school house with almost 3 feet of water. The Old St. Ferdinand Shrine holds over 200 years of history, telling the story of St. Philippine Duchesne, the Jesuits, the pioneer days in the Louisiana Purchase territory, and so much more. We are raising funds to begin the restoration process: the floors buckled in the church, the water soaked the walls, and the HVAC system installed last year will need to be torn out and replaced. All funds will go to The Friends of Old St. Ferdinand Shrine, a non-profit organization founded in 1959, which owns, preserves, maintains, and protects this historical site. Thank you so much in advance for your contribution.
