About

St. Mary's Basilica is oldest Roman Catholic church in Phoenix, Arizona and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Completed in 1914 and dedicated in 1915, St. Mary's Basilica is home to Arizona's largest stained glass windows collection. The Roman architecture building contains four domes supported by Spanish Mission structure. The dome located over the altar is topped with a cupola designed to provide light to the altar.

After elevated to a minor basilica prior to Pope John Paul II's visit to Phoenix in 1987, St. Mary's Basilica became the 32nd basilica in the United States and remains the only basilica in Arizona. St. Mary's Basilica is located at the northeast corner of North 3rd Street and Monroe in downtown Phoenix, adjacent to Phoenix Convention Center.
