The mission of the faithful of St. John Cathedral is to love and worship God, and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ as lived in the Orthodox Christian Church to one another, to our neighbors, and to the world. We accomplish this through beauty in worship, through hospitality, through teaching, through service to those in need, through forgiveness, and through a loving community.
The Cathedral and fifty-five acres of church land are situated at the base of the Chugach Mountains, twelve miles outside of Anchorage, Alaska's largest city. The facilities of the Cathedral include an Orthodox Christian School, a guesthome, and the St. Sergius of Radonezh chapel. The Cathedral also hosts the annual Eagle River Institute of Orthodox Christian Studies and the St. John Summer Camp for teens. Next to the Cathedral is the St. James House which offers a one-year residential program for young singles.
St. John Orthodox Cathedral is a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America in the Diocese of Los Angeles and the West. Our leader is Metropolitan JOSEPH, and we belong to the ancient Patriarchate of Antioch.
