For more than a century, the American Cathedral in Paris has been a center of worship for English-speakers abroad. Located near the Seine in the heart of one of the world's most beautiful cities, it numbers in its parish congregation Americans, Britons and French as well as many other Europeans, Asians, Africans and Latin Americans, all of many denominations. Permanent parishioners total about 400 and their numbers are considerably augmented by students, tourists and business persons here on shorter-term assignments.

The cathedral, recently classified as an historic monument, was consecrated on Thanksgiving Day in 1886, but its roots go back even further, to the days when American Episcopalians began gathering together for worship in the 1830s
