St Paul's Cathedral Trust in America

The St Paul’s Cathedral Trust in America is a US-based public charity that funds vital education for the St Paul’s Choristers and works to conserve one of Britain's finest cathedrals.

St Paul's has had a long relationship with the American people, formed largely after the Second World War, a conflict in which thousands of Americans based within the UK were to give their lives.

The most visible striking reminder of this sacrifice and subsequent friendship can be found beyond the High Altar at the very east end of the Cathedral, in the American Memorial Chapel - a space rebuilt after being destroyed in the Blitz and dedicated in its entirety to the American dead of WWII.

The American Memorial Chapel, containing at its heart, the Roll of Honour with the names of the 28,000 American servicemen who died while serving on British soil during WWII, was completed and opened in 1958.

During the Chapel’s construction, the St Paul’s Choristers performed a series of 41 concerts across the US to commemorate the opening of the Chapel and express their gratitude for the Americans who aided Britain during the war.

Now, on the Chapel’s 60th anniversary, the Choristers are returning to the US to honour those who fell fighting for freedom and for peace, and to renew the bond that exists between the US and the UK.

Our choristers now need your support to improve their lives in a transformational school building project. Join us in making this experience available to future generations by visiting
