St. Paul's in Pictures

Always a welcoming place,
St. Paul's is located in the charming neighborhood of just north of Wilshire and south of Montana Avenue in Santa Monica.

"Curb Appeal" doesn't begin to describe St. Paul's exterior, and the interior is equally impressive, an ideal setting for both solemn observance and joyful praise.

St. Paul's is a home for music as well, not only on Sundays when the mighty Abbot & Sieker pipe organ and robust choir raises the roof, but also as the sanctuary plays serene host to top-notch classical music concerts by guest ensembles throughout the year.


St. Paul's is a center for the community, hosting groups ranging from Alcoholics Anonymous meetings to ESL classes.

On weekdays, we share or education wing with the highly rated Palisades Preschool, serving the needs of families from the surrounding community.


During election season, we are a precinct polling station for the neighborhood.

The chapel was completed in 1929 and has played host to countless weddings, baptisms and celebrations of life over its 79 years.


It's no surprise that St. Paul's has been a location for filming dating all the way back to the original "Father of the Bride" (1950), starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor.
