- Overlooking Loring Park is the stately and splendid Episcopal Cathedral Church of St. Mark. The huge English Gothic structure asserts an almost aristocratic presence, yet offers a sense of welcome to all. A parish church, which received the designation of 'Cathedral' in 1941, it serves a congregation of over 1200. The manila-colored limestone used on the exterior was painstakingly shipped from Bedford, Indiana during construction in the early 1900s. The front façade contains a multitude of artfully sculptured figures representing the history of St. Mark's and the people who played a role in its success. Bishops, priests and missionaries, as well as symbols of the great state of Minnesota (teepees, gophers and grain elevators), are proudly displayed. The numerous stained glass windows depicting saints and heavenly scenes are truly works of art. Visit the web site for worship times and other information.
