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.

2020 Catholic Stewardship Appeal: Many Hands, One Vision

The Catholic Stewardship Appeal, the annual fundraising campaign of the ten-county Archdiocese of Milwaukee, supports Catholic life throughout southeastern Wisconsin.


The Appeal provides Catholics opportunities to support a wide range of ministries and programs that benefit more than 500,000 people each year.   As Disciples of Christ, and in communion with Him, we respond to the call of helping our brothers and sisters in His name.  There is no better, more convenient way to participate in making lives better than through the Appeal.
