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."
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.
Green Spirits is a community outreach and social networking group at St. John's Cathedral. Our vision statement:
We will take action to learn about, to protect, and to renew God's earth and all who call it home.
To receive advance notice of our events, sign up for our newsletter here, choose Green Spirits in the pull-down menu.
