Welcome to St. Ferdinand Catholic Parish of St. Louis. Our parish population has approximately 1,800 active families. We are the fourth oldest parish in the Archdiocese of St. Louis - established in 1787. St. Rose Philippine Duchesne served in this parish back in the 1800's. Some of the wonderful attributes about our parish are that we have a small but vibrant school, a Perpetual Adoration Chapel that is open everyday of the week, many organizations that serve all aspects of parish life, and the BEST Fish Fry in St. Louis for over 60 years, which is open [almost] every Friday of the year.
We are always happy to see new faces or some we haven't seen in a while. If you would like to join us for Mass or grab a bite at our Fish Fry we would be honored to have you visit us.
OUR FISH FRY IS SERVING (ALMOST) EVERY FRIDAY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. IT IS WORTH THE DRIVE AND WORTH THE WAIT. 3pm-7:30pm during Lent; 2:30-7:30 on Good Friday; 3-7 all other Fridays of the year. Come have the best Fish Fry in the St. Louis area. Don't accept anything less than the best, for 60 years!!!
