    We had a guide tour of St. John's Cathedral. The guide was very interesting and knew her history and facts of the cathedral. I brought a group of fifth graders a few years ago. Super tour!!!  more »

    The cathedral and its history are worth a stop and don't forget to visit the cemetery behind the cathedral, typical.  more »

    The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist is a beautiful church located in downtown Lafayette, LA. The cathedral itself is an incredible structure of light colored brick with white accents. On the property is a massive 500-year-old oak tree with a canopy that stretches over 200 feet! The trunk is 28 feet around and has an interest shape due to the winds that have slowly twisted it over the centuries. If you're in Lafayette, this is a wonderful destination for a quick stop or for a service.

    Their 11:00 am mass is especially beautiful. The choir is awe inspiring. At Christmas time their choir performs traditional carols that are also lovely.
