All Souls Requiem

Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m.

As Episcopalians, we believe that true life transcends death. As members of St. James Cathedral, we set aside time each year to honor our loved ones who have died. If you grieve the loss of friends or family, join us in this moving service of song, scripture, and stillness.

When you visit St. James Cathedral on All Souls Day, expect to receive a warm welcome! Whether you are a committed follower of Christ, a first-time visitor who is joining a friend, or fall somewhere in between, you're not just welcome, you belong!

Plan your visit

The All Souls Requiem Eucharist at St. James Cathedral is a meaningful service of music and prayer to remember those who have died. The Cathedral Choir sings Fauré’s radiant and comforting Requiem. During the service, we will remember by name those whom we have loved and have gone before us in death.

It is not uncommon for people to either dress casually or formally when visiting the Cathedral. Our priority is that you to feel comfortable. 

Children are always welcome at St. James. There is an open space to the front right of the pews for children to play under your supervision and a changing station for parents of our youngest members under the church in the restrooms.

The cathedral is accessible to people with limited mobility. An access ramp is located at the west end of the building, 65 E. Huron St.
