Welcome to the Cathedral

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.

How You Can Help: Statement from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Regarding Hurricane Florence

As Hurricane Florence moves rapidly through the Carolinas, we lift up in prayer all of those who may be impacted, asking God to guide the first responders to those in need, and to ‘love thy neighbor’ by offering assistance to those within their community and beyond.

Initially a Category 4 hurricane, Florence has produced rainfall flooding, life-threatening storm surges and destructive winds. Despite being a thousand miles away in Wisconsin, we still have ways to help victims of Hurricane Florence.

One way to assist is through making a donation to Catholic Charities USA. The agencies of Catholic Charities directly impact areas by initially taking on the role as short-term disaster responders, providing victims with food, financial aid, clothing, shelter, gas and retail store cards, and household goods.

In addition, Catholic Charities has opened shelters, established temporary housing in diocesan and state facilities, provided crisis counseling, organized parish “Adopt-a-Family” programs, held furniture drives, and raised money to offer assistance.

Donations can be made online at catholiccharitiesusa.org or by texting CCUSADISASTER to 71777.

Let us join in prayer for those who are in the path of Hurricane Florence. May God bless and protect them, and may He extend the might of his right hand and bid the sea be “quiet and still” (Mark 4:39).

Key Observations About Our Parish

Our Cathedral Pastoral Council is in the process of a Strategic plan working with Mark Kemmeter from the Archdiocesan Planning Commission.

Please click here to read the report which contains Key Parish Data and Key Area Demographics, all information that will be very important in our planning for the future. We are asking that all parish members read the report in preparation for a Parish Gathering in the Fall “Envisioning Our Future…”. Copies of the report will be available in the Sacristy for those who do not have access to a computer.
