St. James Cathedral


OUTREACH AND ADVOCACY

I am in your midst as one who serves

These words from the Gospel of Luke, inscribed in the oculus high over the altar of St. James Cathedral, speak to our mission to carry out Christ’s teaching in our community. Every day, St. James volunteers reach out in love to the needy of First Hill and Downtown Seattle.
