Outreach Ministries

of the Human Concerns Commission

The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, as a place of healing, acts in solidarity with the poor and marginalized, promotes human dignity, and works for justice through direct service, formation, advocacy and systemic change.

The Human Concerns Commission of the Cathedral's Parish Council participates in several outreach ministries. The following are brief descriptions of them. Should you wish detailed information, select the ministry in the menu to the left.

The Open Door Cafe
