Where Saints Have Prayed

Our Church

Welcome to St. Alphonsus Church, downtown Baltimore’s Powerhouse of Prayer!

We cordially welcome visitors to this historic church where an American Saint, St. John Neumann, professed his vows as a Religious, served as pastor, and was consecrated a bishop. New parishioners and Novena family members are most welcome and are urged to register with the parish office.

The mission of Saint Alphonsus is to minister to a far-flung Lithuanian community and to those who feel the need for more traditional services, while reaching out to a new generation downtown, a link between old and new Baltimore. Saint Alphonsus is the designated home to the Tridentine Mass, every Sunday and Holy Day.


"How I love, O Lord, the beauty of Thy House!" (Ps 26:8)
