  • Mission Statement
    The final parish mission statement approved by the Cathedral Vestry in June 2017 is as follows.
    The mission of the Cathedral Parish of St. John the Baptist is to proclaim and celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ through worship, example, and action, recognizing its location in the heart of St. John’s and
    its responsibility as the Cathedral of the Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador. The Cathedral Parish will, by the Grace of God:
    ● Foster faith development in every person seeking to explore their relationship with God;
    ● Provide vibrant and liturgically-sound worship experiences that embrace its rich musical tradition and cathedral setting;
    ● Deliver ministry and outreach that meets people’s needs;
    ● Preserve Anglican heritage and tradition of Newfoundland and Labrador and honour Anglican relationships to historic sites and events; and
    ● Facilitate Diocesan ministry reflected through the Cathedral.
