Called to Serve
As a parish and as a Cathedral church, we are committed to service and to deep involvement in our community. St. John's has a long history of effective and creative reponses to the needs around us. Volunteer opportunities are varied and rich. Being situated in the heart of downtown Jacksonville invites us to remember our Lord's words, "In as much as you did this to the least of these, you did it to me."
Below is a video that lists some of the ministries here at the cathedral from our Rally Day, an annual event held at the end of August where all are invited to learn more about and take part in the ministries of St. John's. The event this year was entirely space-themed, as our tagline was, "There's a space for you at St. John's Cathedral!"
St. John's offers many opportunities for lay ministry within the parish. And beyond our walls, our outreach ministries aim to bring Christ's love to the greater community:
...I was a stranger and you welcomed me...
- Matthew 25:35
