Welcome to the Cathedral of St. 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!
This Lent several Cathedral parishioners will be sharing here their reflections on the Sunday Psalms. We thank them for sharing these reflections with us. Please click on the image to view it full size.
Have a blessed Lent!
