About the Cathedral

St. John’s is a house of prayer where all people can come to know the compassionate heart of Jesus. We are a diverse, intentionally cross-cultural community of progressive Christians where you can belong before you believe. Our worship includes ancient and contemporary symbols and practices and preaching to inspire you to follow Jesus in your daily life. The best way to know who we are is to come and see how we worship God.
