Operation Staycation at Grace Cathedral


Want to get away without going away? SFGate named us one of the “best Bay Area spots to fake a European vacation.”

Come see our stunning French Gothic architecture; the Ghiberti doors, modeled after the Doors of Paradise in Florence; and our famed stained glass windows. Make your visit even more exciting by using our brand new app, GraceGuide, which guides you through the cathedral with fascinating stories and beautiful music. Even if you’ve visited the cathedral before, you’re sure to learn something new and experience the cathedral in a different way. And kids and families will love “Cathedral Quest.” It’s a fun scavenger hunt on the app with a prize hidden in the cathedral.  

Fancy a bit of a zen-cation?  Come to Tuesday night yoga. It’s a truly unique experience to practice yoga under the soaring arches and jewel-like windows, accompanied by amazing live music.   

If you’re the type of traveler who seeks out great performances, we have an exciting menu of concerts, some ticketed, some free, from experimental music to opera, organ and our renowned Choir of Men and Boys, who just returned from performing at some of the great cathedrals of England.

Spend a staycation day at Grace Cathedral and have an adventure without leaving San Francisco. There are dozens of fun things to explore here that you may never have realized are right in your backyard.
