The Cathedral of Saint James


You are Welcome Here!


All are welcome to join us for worship. Our worship follows the ancient pattern of praising God, reading and reflecting upon Holy Scripture, responding to the Word of God in creed and prayer, and celebrating Holy Eucharist (Communion). All baptized Christians, regardless of the denomination in which you regularly worship, are welcome to receive Communion in this Church.

May God’s grace and peace be with you.

Where are we located?

We are located at 117 N. Lafayette Blvd on the west side of downtown South Bend, IN. We are at the corner of W. Washington St. and Lafayette Blvd.

Children in Worship


We encourage you to bring children of any age to worship. Don't worry if your children won't sit still. We understand that is part of being a child. Feel free to move around. We have books and a children's activity bulletin available. If your child needs to take a walk or get a drink of water, please feel welcome to tend to those needs. If you prefer to try our nursery, it is available for children up to three years of age.



The nursery at the Cathedral of Saint James is located on the main level of Cathedral House and is accessible to the Cathedral through the Chapel Hallway located in the southwest corner of the nave. The nursery is a place where parents can gather to watch their children play, as well as a place they can feel confident to leave their children, knowing they will be in a safe, secure and in a fun environment. The nursery is designed primarily for babies and toddlers; older children, such as siblings, are encouraged to attend the service with their parents. If you have any questions, stop by on Sunday morning and speak with the Nursery Staff. Nursery Hours: Sundays 9:15 am to the Passing of the Peace. The nursery is also available during other select events held at the Cathedral.

Handicap Access


A wheelchair ramp into the Cathedral proper is located from the West Washington Street parking lot.

All social events and coffee hour after church are held in the first floor of St. Margaret's House which is handicap accessible via elevator. The entrance to St. Margaret's House is on the north side of the Cathedral complex in the Lafayette Blvd parking lot.

The Cathedral is in the midst of a capital campaign to provide handicap access and facilities through the Cathedral complex.



SUNDAY MORNINGS: Parking is available in both of our lots. One on North Lafayette Blvd directly north of the Cathedral building proper (top box above). The other is on West Washington Street (bottom box). Those needing handicapped access to the Cathedral should use the West Washington Street parking lot.

OTHER TIMES: There is limited parking available in the North Lafayette Blvd lot. The West Washington Street parking lot is reserved paid parking during the week. There is also limited 1 hour street parking available on Lafayette Blvd.
