St. James Cathedral, Chicago

4.9
St. James Cathedral is a vibrant and historic Episcopal church in the heart of downtown Chicago, welcoming you as you are, without conditions or expectations. Week by week, we grow together, following Jesus into a loving, liberating, and life-giving relationship with God, with each other, and with the earth. We find inspiration in traditional worship and progressive, theologically-grounded teaching which fully embraces all people into the body of Christ regardless of age, ethnicity, expression, orientation, or background. We seek to engage with our communities by listening to our neighbors, serving those in need, and asking challenging and culturally relevant questions about faith, identity, and experience.

We invite you to worship with us, to learn with us, to share with us, and to join this imperfect yet authentic congregation where you belong and you are welcome.
