Tall Oaks Church[note 1] was a place of worship in the American town of Tall Oaks. After Leon S. Kennedy was forced to kill an infected U.S. President Adam Benford, agent Helena Harper brought Leon to the cathedral to find a lead that could help explain what caused the viral outbreak.[1]

While there, they discover a group of people waiting for the government to send help. Unable to go outside due to the storm and zombies in the graveyard, the people there refuse to open the door to Leon and Helena unless the zombies are fought off. After killing most of the undead, the duo is forced to go through a number of puzzles to open the catacombs underneath the church. However, when the doors to the catacombs are opened, a Lepotitsa is discovered to have been hiding under the church. The creature infects numerous people until it is shot down and killed.

Derek C. Simmons's family is revealed to have built the church and the most recent addition to the cathedral is shown to be an underground facility where various experiments were done on the C-Virus and B.O.Ws. The church and the graveyard surrounding it was likely destroyed during the airstrike.


  1. A literal translation of the Japanese script for Resident Evil 6 reveals the name to be "Tall Oaks Church" (教会 ). In Japanese, the word taiseidō ("大聖堂 "?) is the way of writing "Cathedral".
