Cathedral of Sts. Peter and Paul in Estonia

Pope Francis will meet those who receive assistance from the Estonian Catholic Church’s charitable services at the Cathedral of Sts. Peter and Paul in Tallinn. Catholicism dominated Estonia during the Middle Ages but was banned after the Reformation when Sweden controlled the country. Once Russia took over in 1710, religious freedom was introduced, and Catholics were allowed to worship in Estonia. The church was built in 1841 and was completed during the 20th century.
