Châlons Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Châlons) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Châlons-en-Champagne, France, formerly Châlons-sur-Marne.

It is the seat of the Bishops of Châlons and was consecrated in 1147 October 26, by Pope Eugene III.

Jean-Jacques Arveuf-Fransquin designed the neo-Flamboyant organ case of Châlons Cathedral. The case was created by the cabinetmaker Etienne Gabriel Ventadour, and housed the instrument made by John Abbey, who delivered the instrument in 1849.[1] The cathedral is also noted for its stained glass windows.
