Cathedral of St. Paul

Share a story

The Cathedral of St. Paul in Erie was founded as St. Paul’s Church on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 1827. St. Paul’s then became the cathedral of the new diocese on Feb. 21, 1915. We include over 250 active members and friends who are seekers, strugglers, sinners and saints. Most are members of the Episcopal Church, but some are not, and all are welcome.

We are the cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania and we worship in the tradition of Episcopal and Anglican cathedrals throughout the world. Our joyful, reverent services are enhanced by thoughtful, biblical preaching and excellent music.

Our worship strengthens us to do the work of seeking justice, caring for creation, nurturing reconciliation and spreading peace in the city of Erie, northwestern Pennsylvania and beyond.

People of all ages, classes and conditions have found a spiritual home at the Cathedral of St. Paul. Whether you are young or old, married or single, straight or gay, rich or poor; whether your faith is strong or weak, clear or uncertain, whether you are seeking or whether you have found; we welcome you to join us in worship, study, reflection and service in the name of Jesus.
