In the heart of Chicago, the renewed diocesan center and plaza provide a welcoming gathering space for the surrounding community and the congregations it serves.

  • The fresh facilities at St. James Commons include a beautiful plaza and garden, a new welcome center, renovated meeting space and a Great Hall on the lower level.
  • The new plaza features granite pavers, ample seating, a fountain, regional plantings and a labyrinth.
  • A high-end, stainless steel commercial kitchen and upgraded HVAC systems support the multiple functions of the building.
  • New elevators and other accessibility improvements help the Diocese and Cathedral welcome people of all abilities.
