Seattle's Historic Downtown Cathedral
We are the Cathedral for the Catholic Archdiocese of Seattleand its Archbishop, the Most Reverend J. Peter Sartain. We are alsoa parish church for a vibrant faith community with a long historythat reaches back to Seattle's early days. We are an inner-city parish with an outreach to many who live on the edge of poverty and loneliness. We are a diverse community that welcomes, accepts, and celebrates the differences we all bring. We exist in the heart of the city, yet sometimes our parishioners come from considerable distances to worship here. St. James Cathedral is a crossroads where ideas and challenges both old and new are explored in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Cathedral is also the center for many cultural and ecumenical events which both reflect and help to shape a vital metropolitan community. Above all, St. James Cathedral is a community of prayer.

In Our Midst as One Who Serves by Suzanne S. via Judy's Book on 11/27/2005

The title of this post comes from the inscription, set in the oculus, above the altar at St. James Cathedral. It is the the central idea around which this community gathers, a remarkable community of which I am honored to be a member and…

A Beautiful Church by Amanda L via Insider Pages on 11/21/2005

St. James Cathedral is a beautiful catholic church with two towers on each side of the main building. The inside is breathtaking with a central altar rather than the traditional front altar. The pipes for the organs are beautifully made…
