Cathedral of Mary Our Queen
5200 North Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21210
Directions

Overview

When Baltimore’s great fire raged towards Thomas O'Neill's dry goods store at Charles and Lexington Streets in 1904, he rushed to a nearby Carmelite convent to pray for the safety of the building. O’Neill’s prayer came true when the wind shifted and spared his building from the flames. In thanks, he donated two-thirds of his wealth to build a new cathedral in Baltimore when he died in 1919. The Cathedral of Mary our Queen is his lasting legacy.
