    We welcome You to St James

    We do hope you will visit us this Sunday, or even throughout the week. Please join us for coffee after the service.  Members of the Welcome Team will be glad to introduce you to others and to answer your questions. Just follow the crowd exiting at the front of the Cathedral toward the Welcome Center. Or, ask an usher or any member of the congregation to show you the way.

    We send out a weekly e-mail; sign up for it here. We hope you will learn more about the Cathedral on this site and we encourage you to follow us on Facebook or Twitter. And always feel free to email or contact the Church office at 312-787-7360.

    Please take the time to fill out a short visitor card to let us know how we can further your experience here at St. James!
