About Our Church

Important Notice: Our Response to COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our church is currently open for limited hours for private prayer and Sunday Masses only. Please follow our social distancing measures during your visit, and book in advance if you wish to attend one of our Masses in the church.

We are a Catholic parish located in the Portobello district of Edinburgh, Scotland, in the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh. Our historic church building was designed by the architect JT Walford and was completed in 1906.

Our parochial school is St. John's RC Primary School, located at 18 Duddingston Road. We share our community with our sister parish, St Mary Magdalene's at Bingham.
