Standing majestically at the heart of capital city of Helena in Montana, the Cathedral of Saint Helena is not only an active place of worship, it is also a breathtaking work of architecture.

Constructed in 1980, this Late Gothic Revival-styled cathedral was designed by architect A. O. Von Herbulis. It was patterned after the Votive Church of the Sacred Heart in Vienna, Austria. Its most distinguishing feature is its towering, maroon-colored twin spires. The main structure and interior elements is made from Carrara marble. The sanctuary is adorned with gold leaf while the altar is made of marble. Stained glass windows reveal intricate glasswork. The oak pews were carved by hand, while the lighting fixtures were made from forged bronze.

This cathedral is truly a magnificent work of art. Its historical, religious and cultural significance earned it an entry in the National Register of Historic Places on April 30, 1980.
