True Confessions Gangster Tour

Now I hate to drag a skeleton out of the city closet but…did you know three of Dillinger's Gang member were killed in this city?

Sr. Celestine has been in Heaven for nearly a century but she graciously returns to tell the tales that both enlighten and put the fear of God in her listeners!

In the Middle Ages people learned about Good and Evil by watching Morality Plays. During Prohibition people in St. Paul people learned about Good and Evil by watching their shamelessly corrupt elected officials …and the parade of convicted felons they cordially invited to “layover for a little while”.

A tour that explores the lesser known chapter of the city’s history when America’s Most Wanted lived and died on the streets of St. Paul.

Notable sites include the Lowry Hotel, Mickey's Diner, the Hamm’s Casino, Patrick’s Novelty, the Green Lantern, Rice Park, Hotel St. Francis, the Palace Theatre, the Old Police Station and more.

These are stories that were not easily offered up in any confessional!

Afterwards you may want to fortify yourself with a little refreshment in the Group Confessional at Celeste of St. Paul: Hotel + Bar (Sr. Celeste’s former convent home)!

Tour includes a select beverage afterwards in the Hotel Bar!
