Who We Are

The Cathedral of the Episcopal Church in Colorado

Saint John’s Cathedral exists as a house of prayer for the Episcopal Church in Colorado and the people of metropolitan Denver. Through the union of Word, Sacrament, and music, we share the loving presence of God in Christ with all who enter our doors. Our beliefs about God, meaning, and love are best experienced in the ancient liturgies we pray and sing week in and week out. Join our growing and diverse community as we strive to follow Jesus Christ in faithful and creative ways.

Our Programs

In addition to a strong Sunday program of worship and formation, our community gathers on Wednesday evenings for Cathedral Night (September – April) for Holy Eucharist, dinner, and formation groups.

  • Worship

    Our Sunday morning service range in both language and music and offer a wide range of worship styles to suit people of different faith backgrounds and spiritual needs.

    Attend a service, serve as an usher, acolyte, or verger, or lead evening prayer.

  • Music

    With a large choir leading the congregation in hymns, anthems, and spirituals, music at Saint John’s Cathedral ranges wide to incorporate old and new Christian traditions.

    Support the music department, attend a concert, or sing in the choir.

  • Connect & Grow

    Part of belonging to a church means being a part of the community of worshipers, and we have a number of ways to get involved and engage with your faith.

    Meet people in the pews, at ministry meetings, or in our formation programming. Deepen your faith and engage in conversation at Catechumenate, Education for Ministry, or Mile High Theology.

  • Children & Youth

    Creating a safe environment for children and youth to wonder about the world and their faith is one of our top priorities, and there are various opportunities for children to learn about God and discover what their faith means.

    Bring your kid to church early for our take on Sunday School.

Our History

Since the founding of the Episcopal community in Colorado, the cathedral’s central location in the city and its early founding allow the cathedral to have a large influence in the wider community. Just steps away from the capitol building, the cathedral has a legacy of beauty, mystery, and goodness that impacts the daily lives in Capitol Hill, Denver, Colorado, and beyond.
