Anyone have access to St. Louis Archdioceasn Parish records (late 1884)?

I am on the hunt for a baptismal record for my grandfather Mike Theodore Enders (Endres). He was supposedly born in St. Louis, MO on 21 Dec 1884. His father was Mathias Endres/Enders and Mary O. Enders/Endres nee Knoebel.  Mary was Catholic so I assume if he was baptized it would have been in one of the Catholic churches. I "think" I found the burial of his older brother Edward who died the year before in St. Peter and Paul cemetery in St. Louis.  I have found on line that one of the St. Louis library (I'm not sure if its city or historical society) has some records on-line for their patrons.  I am hoping that someone who has access could look to see if his baptism may be present. Assuming, of course, that they can be accessed.

Thanks in advance

You might try contacting the Archdiocesan Archives. Their webpage is https://www.archstl.org/archdiocesan-archives

Edit

In browsing the website, they point you to FamilySearch. Searching the catalog with author “Catholic Missouri” brings up a lot of church records. See https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&query=%2Bauthor%3ACatholic%20%2Bauthor%3AMissouri&subjectIndex=250&subjectsOpen=535472-50,449925-50,480539-50

They also have a map of St. Louis parishes ... there have been almost 100 since the late 1700s. The number in existence in 1884 were much less. The map has the dates the parish was (or is) in existence which will narrow the list.
