Cathedral of St. Helena 1908

 

Modeled after the famous Votive Church of the Sacred Heart in Vienna, Austria, the Cathedral of St. Helena was originally constructed during the turn of the century and Bishop John Carroll's episcopate. It is a perfect example of classic Geometric Neo-Gothic architecture. As such, it is revered by residents of Helena as a touch of the grandeur of Austrian past right there in the present in Montana. Its distinctive trademark double spires rise 230 feet above the level of the street and can clearly be seen throughout the local community, and the cathedral is still an operating place of Catholic worship.
