    St James Cathedral is located next to the Driehaus Museum, and is yet rather hidden. The main doors are not open, and people enter through the back. Perhaps because of this, the cathedral was totally ...  more »

    We attended the family service on a Sunday morning, and while we found attendance to be sparse, we did find the communicants to be friendly and welcoming.  more »

    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!

    Wonderful architecture and very well preserved. The service was wonderful. Even from a millennial's perspective, the traditional service was very pleasant.

    Beautiful church inside and out. Always happy to worship here when given the chance

    The facade of the church survived the Chicago Fire. Inside is a plaque noting that Abraham Lincoln worshiped there in 1860.

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.
