A beautiful neo-gothic church (Episcopal) in the heart of Paris, with a wonderful choir. We've visited here many times. A great place to visit for English speaking services while in Paris. Informative tours of the Cathedral every Sunday after the 11 a.m. service.

Impressive and tranquil adjacent to two grand hotels and a short stroll to the Champs Elysse. A place to collect one's thoughts and repair for the continuance of one's exploration. 19th century architecture, but extensive and peaceful.

Went to the cathedral on Christmas Day for the service and it was beautiful. We arrived there a little late but we were still let in and joined the congregation. The cathedral was decked out with poinsettias which complemented the stained glass windows. The flags of every state of the US are placed around the top part of the cathedral... More

What a great experience we had at this wonderful church and I would highly recommend a visit to anyone, but not just for mass. There was apparently some construction on the front entrance so we entered through one of the side doors and were actually shocked that, other than a lone priest in the pews, we were the only people...

I had the pleasure of joining this church to feed the homeless during last year's Christmas season. If you're in Paris over Christmas, this is truly a rewarding experience... and you might learn some wonderful culinary skills :)) But, the other amazing thing... this church has a wall dedicated to honor American soldiers that fell on foreign soil. As an... More

Was looking for an English Sunday service and found this church. Was a bit surprised that it was presided by a female pastor (dean), but she was passionate and welcoming. Since I am Catholic, the service is somewhat familiar, but again also more modern and less restrictive (they allow anyone who wishes to receive the Eucharist, which is a bit... More

I was happy to see several people wandering into this beautiful cathedral for a moment of peace. Close to the Champs Elysee and smack dab in the middle of the ultra expensive hotels it brings you back to connecting with God.

I always enjoy attending Church while on the road in historically significant churches. This one is significant as the home of many American Expats. Great architecture, friendly people. The music was beautiful - in the Episcopal tradition. A great way to start Sunday morning.

The American Cathedral is similar to many other churches in Paris, but has one difference for Americans: find your state's flag and embroidered kneeler (with the state flowers). This is not the place for a tourist break, but if you would like a reverent moment of quiet with a bit of a different story or if you would like to... More
