Welcome to St. John the Evangelist RC Church, Edinburgh

St. John's is accessible to wheelchairs and has a LOOP system fitted for those with hearing aids.

St. John's is part of a group of parishes which are planning to work together to promote links between our parishes; maximise the use of our skills and resources; and prepare for the impact of the foreseen shortage of priests.

There is a local Catholic primary school - also St. John's, Portobello

and a secondary school - Holy Rood High School

We also support FairTrade, are part of the Portobello Council of Churches and have a relationship with a group of small Christian communities in Legho, Tanzania in Africa.
