  • The 9:00 a.m. service at St. James is designed for families with young children. We were greeted by the children’s minister, who introduced herself and made us feel welcome. There is an area on one si...  more »

  • Stunningly beautiful church with worship services to match, running the gamut from quiet morning prayer to full-choir Eucharist. Diverse congregation where all are truly welcome. You'll find gay and straight, families and singles, life-long Episcopalians and seekers. It's been my "church home" for about 8 years and I love the many ways I experience God through prayer, action and fellowship.
  • Great venue for concerts. Handicapped entrance is behind the actual cathedral with reserved places up front. We heard the Windy City Gay Chorus with mostly non-tradional carols. Discount for 65+.
  • While visiting Chicago, we had the opportunity to attend the 9A service. This service focuses on the children and was great to have our church members of tomorrow so involved today. Talked with the Sr. Warden who was very informative and helpful making us feel welcome. The history behind this place is sensational from the spiritual and humanity perspective. If you ever have the opportunity to visit, please research the history first. It will give you a head start on every piece of history you will see. Would add pics but it just doesn't demonstrate how beautiful St. James is. We will be back next year and attend the 11A service when the organ and choir will participate. Can only imagine how beautiful that will be!
  • Took in a midday Eucharist while on vacation. Beautiful church and very nice staff.
  • Since it is the Cathedral. It is a welcoming place.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
