The Cathedral Chapel, which seats about 90, is used regularly for small weddings and funerals and for midday prayer on weekdays.  The grisaille windows by Charles Connick depict Eucharistic symbols – grape vines, a wine press, the loaves and fishes, and other symbols of the heavenly banquet.

The statue of Mary known as Our Lady of Seattle came to St. James from the pioneer church of Seattle, Our Lady of Good Help, built by Father Francis Xavier Prefontaine.  This statue, made in Italy, came by boat “around the horn” in the early 1870s, and is said to be the first image of Our Lady to be publicly venerated in the city of Seattle.
