Visiting St. James


When you visit St. James Cathedral, expect to receive a warm welcome! St. James is a vibrant and historic Episcopal church in the heart of downtown Chicago, welcoming you as you are, without conditions or expectations. If you are a first-time visitor to our church or website, we look forward to meeting you when you visit our church.


Plan your visit

Sundays are filled with activity, with three services of Holy Eucharist, Sunday School, Dean’s Forums, refreshments and conversation in the Welcome Center, and other activities. Sunday worship schedule.

During the week, we invite you to explore the cathedral on your own by entering through the Welcome Center at 65 E. Huron Street. The receptionist will direct you to the cathedral and provide you with a self-guided tour. You may also want to visit the outdoor labyrinth on the plaza. Weekday worship schedule.

A disability access ramp is located at 65 E. Huron St., at the west end of the building.
