Visiting St. James


When you visit St. James Cathedral, expect to receive a warm welcome! Whether you are a committed follower of Christ, an occasional visitor who appreciates our programming, or fall somewhere in between, you are welcome here without conditions or expectations. If you are a first-time visitor to our website, we look forward to meeting you when you visit our church.

Plan your visit

Sundays are filled with activity! There are three services of Holy Eucharist, Sunday School, Dean’s Forums, refreshments and conversation in the Welcome Center, and other events. View the Sunday service schedule.

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. The 9 a.m. service is designed to actively engage them in worship. Childcare is provided during the 11 a.m. service for kids of all ages.

During the week, there are two services each day. You are welcome to explore the cathedral on your own with a self-guided tour between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. most days. You may also want to visit the outdoor labyrinth on the plaza. View the weekday service schedule

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.
