The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist

Welcome to the Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist

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.
