This beautiful, neo-Gothic cathedral can be found in heart of Paris on the Avenue George V between the Champs-Élysées and the right bank of the River Seine. It is the seat of the Episcopal Church of Europe. The origin of the cathedral dates back to the 1870s when John B. Morgan, cousin to J.P. Morgan, successfully raised money to buy land and build a church for the local American Episcopal congregation. Designed by English architect, George Street, who also designed the American church in Rome. It was consecrated on November 25th, Thanksgiving Day 1886.
