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.See St. James Cathedral and all Chicago has to offer by arranging your trip with our Chicago tour itinerary planning website.
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.

Hands down one of the best musical experiences you'll ever have as music plays such an important role in the episcopal church.

A must see for anyone visiting or living in Chicago. The Cathedral is beautiful as well and has been around for a long time with a rich and varied history.
Gorgeous church. We were there for my husband's Mom and Dad's Memorial Service. The Minister and congregation were wonderful.
