In 1919 when Thomas O’Neill, the owner of a successful dry goods store at Charles and Lexington Streets, passed away his will specified that part of his estate be set aside for the construction of a cathedral in Baltimore. With O’Neill’s generous bequest, ground was broken in 1954, and the cathedral was consecrated and dedicated in 1959. This Gothic cathedral, the third largest in the United States, seats 1900 people, holds over 385 sculptures and features 398 panels of stained glass. Pope John Paul II visited the Cathedral in 1995, a plaque outside the Blessed Sacrament Chapel commemorates his visit. Come learn more about the Cathedral on a docent-led tour between 10am and 1pm!
