Welcome to 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!
On Monday, October 31 and Tuesday, November 1 the Cathedral will gather for a Parish Mission! Jerry Galipeau, Vice President and Chief Publishing Officer for the J.S. Paluch Company will be our Presenter.
