The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine is not only a place of worship but also a social and cultural center. It aims to unite people of different confessions. Its community outreach activities have made it an inextricable part of the city’s social landscape just like its impressive size and architectural excellence has made it a historical and cultural landmark.
The Cathedral owns precious Barberini and Mortlake tapestries. A special laboratory was set up to monitor and ensure their conservation.
The church organizes many social and educational programs, including Sunday Soup Kitchen and health center. It welcomes everyone in need of food, shelter, clothing, legal representation or any other necessities.
Another important aspect of Saint John’s prominence is its involvement with arts. It is a great concert venue where you can come for music, poetry recitals, art exhibitions, or public lectures.
