Saint James Cathedral
Archdiocese of Seattle
For more than a century Saint James Cathedral has stood atop Seattle's First Hill as a place of light and a place of welcome, both sentinel and beacon as it stands watch over a vibrant city, calling people to prayer, challenging them to justice, and enticing them with beauty.
Saint James Cathedral was dedicated by Bishop Edward J. O'Dea on December 22, 1907. St James Cathedral was rededicated on December 22, 1994 by Archbishop Thomas Murphy following nearly a year of extensive renovation to create the cathedral church you enter today. The Holy Door, one of the ceremonial bronze doors sculpted by Ulrich Henn, depicts the journey of humanity towards the heavenly city. The pilgrim is met inside the Holy Door with the inscription "Domus Dei Porta Coeli," "House of God, Door of Heaven."
