Welcome to St. James Cathedral

The Reverend Canon Andrew Asbil

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you catch a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes every day at St. James. The Cathedral is the gathering place for all Anglicans in the Diocese of Toronto and our Bishop calls us to live out our baptismal faith with integrity and love.

Our doors are open seven days a week to provide a place of prayer for the passerby, Christian formation for the pilgrim, food and support for the homeless, a voice of advocacy for the marginalized and respite for the weary.

The choir and musicians inspire us to sing, the Drop-in program calls us to serve, the Bible studies and Christian formation programs summon us to deepen our faith and our daily cycle of worship bids us to pray. Our ministry initiatives with Refugees, Outreach, Re-Generation, Regent Park, Pastoral Care and more provide ways for us to offer hospitality, build community and hasten service.

We hope that you will discover a home among us.

Yours in Christ,

Andrew Asbil,
Dean and Rector,
The Cathedral Church of St. James
