Public Tours and Pilgrimages

Weekday guided tours begin at 1:00 p.m., Tuesday-Friday

Each year, the Cathedral of Saint Paul welcomes over 200,000 guests and visitors. The Cathedral is recognized as a historical landmark, one of the most prominent buildings in the city and as a center of spiritual worship.

Guided tours are offered at the Cathedral of Saint Paul with a Cathedral docent Tuesday through Friday at 1:00 p.m. (except holy days and civil holidays). A suggested tour donation of $2 per person is always welcome, and will be used to support the Cathedral.  Donations may be made at the Tour Desk in the main church. Please gather in the front pew of the center aisle of the Cathedral. No appointment is necessary.

We ask that all visitors requesting a tour come at this regularly scheduled time. If you have a group of 10 or more coming at 1:00 p.m., please contact the Tour Coordinator, Ms. Lori Nicosia at 651.357.1327 with information about your group so that our docents can be prepared to accommodate the specific needs of your group. Large groups (40+) please also call the Tour Coordinator for special arrangements.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate requests for guided tours outside of 1:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
