Welcome to Grace Cathedral, San Francisco

Grace Cathedral is the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of California, and an iconic house of prayer for all - locally, nationally and internationally. Our inclusive congregation consists of seekers and believers, embraces innovation and open-minded conversation, and tries to put its beliefs into action in all aspects of life. The cathedral is a beautiful, sacred space, and our liturgy and well-known music program (including a men and boys choir) attract many to the four Sunday services and daily services. We host cultural events in the visual arts, music and drama often in partnership with other major cultural institutions of the city, civic conversations on key issues of the day, and an excellent and wide-ranging educational program and flagship Forum series. Cathedrals have long been places of pilgrimage and all of us at Grace Cathedral are ready to welcome you among us whenever you are able to visit.

The Very Rev. Dr. Jane Shaw, Dean
