Cathedral Restoration

In Alton since 1855, St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church is a beautiful reminder of the past. Now, the church structure is in need of repairs and is embarking on a large capital campaign that hopes to raise an estimated $800,000.

With success, the capital campaign will cover the costs of restoring the Old Cathedral with much-needed repairs in the stonework and tuck-pointing. The “Preserving the Past for the Future Campaign” will help bring an integral part of Christian Hill to future generations to continue the Catholic tradition

Capital Campaign Restoration Funds raised as of July 25, 2023: $704,497.81
