TOUR THE CATHEDRAL BASILICA

A MESSAGE FROM FATHER DENNIS GILL

Welcome to the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, the mother church of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Francis Patrick Kenrick initiated the building of this magnificent Church in 1846. It was continued through the tenure of Saint John Neumann and completed in 1864 by Bishop (later Archbishop) Wood. You are invited to not only learn more about our Cathedral Basilica through this website but also to join us for liturgy, for private prayers and for a tour of our imposing Basilica.

Keys and Sword Award

Each year, the Cathedral Basilica acknowledges a member of our religious or civic community with our prestigious Keys and Sword Award, named in honor of Saints Peter and Paul, which recognizes extraordinary commitment and selfless dedication in service to others. It acknowledges one whose actions reflect the Gospel values of faith, valor, selfless service, personal sacrifice and respect.
