Welcome to the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist
The seat of the Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee for over 150 years.

Thank you for your interest in the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Whether you’re just visiting us for a brief time, looking for a new parish home, are returning to the practice of your Catholic faith or are interested in finding out more about the Catholic Church, we’re happy to have you here. A parish is a community of believers and a spiritual family that is supportive and loving. It can be a place to grow spiritually, to put your faith in action, and to use our gifts of time and talent as disciples of Christ. We look forward to answering any questions you may have. In the meantime, please look through the resources we’ve made available here on our website!

Our Mission:
We are a welcoming Eucharistic community committed to growing together as disciples of Jesus Christ. As both a parish and the Mother Church of the Archdiocese, we serve as a beacon of faith, a patron of the arts and a haven and advocate for people who are poor and marginalized.

Prayer Service - Love in Action

The tragic loss of lives in Gilroy, California, El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio confront us with a terrible truth, states Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.  The terrible truth is that we can never again believe that mass shootings are an isolated exception.  They have become an epidemic – an epidemic against life that we must, in justice, face.
