Nestled in downtown Orlando, St James Roman Catholic Cathedral features manicured grounds, elegant white facade, and decorations. Built during the 1950s and renovated in 2009, the church serves as the seat of the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Orlando. Spacious yet inviting and cozy, the interior is adorned with colorful murals that grace the altar walls and dome. The light coming through the stained glass windows contributes to the overall spiritual atmosphere, especially during the Mass when the large pipe organ is put into play.

At St. James Catholic Cathedral, the surroundings are grandiose but the atmosphere is so conducive to the deepest connection between your yearning soul and your Omnipotent Creator that you will want to constantly remain here in prayer. The Corpus Christi Sunday Sacramental procession was amazing and included different groups of the diocese. The Eucharist transcended our ethnic backgrounds and brought us together in love and adoration.
Lovely church for prayer and church mass. It is always full for mass but you can visit any other time for prayer and it's a beautiful church. They also have a little store on site with reasonable prices.
