Our Ministry

Our Mission Statement:

As the mother church within the Diocese of Rupert’s Land, St. John’s Cathedral is an inclusive parish, whose Primary Ministries are:

  • To welcome all who come for worship and fellowship;
  • To nurture people in the Christian faith;  and
  • To share in God’s mission in the community, the diocese, and the world.

So what does this mean?

God is actively at work right now.
Join Him.

Sharing in God’s mission first recognizes that God is already at work in the community, the diocese and the world, and so  –  by virtue of our baptism  –  we are invited to discover where God is at work and join God in this work.

As members of St. John’s,
let us pray to this end.


The below list of Ministries is currently incomplete, as we are in the process of building our website. Our apologies.
For a list of our Ministry Leaders, please see the Directory.


The music at St. John’s spans centuries of sacred music tradition, from Gregorian chant to Taize.

The Charlie Brown Tree

Every winter, we ask our parish to donate new mitts, gloves, scarves, hats, and toques by hanging them on the branches of our Charlie Brown Tree set up at the back of the Cathedral. Just before Christmas, they are sent to North End Schools where they are given to children who need them.

The Thelma Wynne Project

The Thelma Wynne Project supplies layettes for needy new mothers in our city. For this very important and necessary outreach there is a great need for new baby clothes, baby toiletries – or cash donations. During the month of February there is a basket at the foot of the font to receive much appreciated donations.
