Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis combines Roman style architecture on the exterior with Byzantine style inside. It is the meeting of East and West just like St. Louis. It was designated a Basilica because of its 8300 square feet of mosaics. The mosaics tell Bible stories and have a more contemporary feel than those in St. Marks in Venice. A small child with a Raggedy Ann doll represents the children of the local orphanage.
