Cathedral Church of St. Paul


The Cathedral Church of St. Paul, the Cathedral and liturgical center of the Episcopal Diocese of Iowa, takes seriously Jesus' inclusion of all people in the Good News of God's love. There is a place for YOU in this community of faith!


We gather to worship God every Sunday at 8 and 10 am. We are a people of Word and Sacrament, combining sacred traditions of liturgy and music with relevant preaching.  Our High Street Chapel is open to the public, as will be our Labyrinth and Gardens.


Since the mid-1800s, St. Paul's has felt a special calling to care for those in our city and our world who are in economic need. Members are especially involved in the Connection Café and Central Iowa Shelter meal programs and in initiatives in Africa, Swaziland, and Sudan

Silent Prayer & Meditation in High Street Chapel

The High Street Chapel will be open for individual silent prayer/meditation 20 minutes before and after each of the regular Eucharist services on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings.

Come for a moment of quiet reflection, light a candle for a special prayer request, or remember a loved one inurned in the Columbarium.

The Worship Cloister also invites anyone interested in helping to "watch and pray" during these times, including making sure lights and candles are extinguished at the end of the prayer time, to contact Cloister co-chair Michael Piper so that a schedule can be prepared.
