Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church, affectionately known as "St. John's" by its parishioners, warmly welcomes you to our website.

We are located in the heart of Center City, providing spiritual enrichment for local residents, daily commuters, and visitors to our city of brotherly love.

St. John the Evangelist has been bringing the Good News to Philadelphia for 179 years. Two canonized saints have ties to St. John's: St. John Neumann and St. Katharine Drexel.

In 1941, St. John's established Holy Redeemer Chinese Catholic Church as a mission chapel. Twenty years later we opened St. John's Hospice to serve the homeless.

Our parish is a community of communities. There is a group for everyone -- from young adults, to healthcare professionals to the musically inclined. Stop by anytime. We'd love to see you!
