The Cathedral of the Diocese of Sioux City is dedicated to the Epiphany of our Lord. It was established as the Cathedral in 1902 with the erection of the Diocese and was the home of Italian, Irish and German Immigrants. The Cathedral continues to live out this diversity as it serves the needs of the growing Asian and Hispanic population of Sioux City by offering Mass in Vietnamese and Spanish in addition to Masses in English. The Cathedral also offers the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite Mass every Sunday morning. The diverse community of The Cathedral of the Epiphany represents the diverse makeup of the diocese as a whole.
