St. John the Evangelist is a parish of the Anglican Diocese of Montreal in the Anglican Church of Canada, founded by Father Edmund Wood in 1861; its church is well known in Montreal as the "Red Roof Church", which is also the headquarters of St. Michael's Mission. Its orientation is Anglo-Catholic, and it is the only Anglican locale in Montreal to practise this tradition, known as High Church. Solemn High Mass is celebrated on Sundays and feast days and Solemn Evensong and Benediction several Sundays a year. Mass is said daily, in French on Tuesdays. The Orthodox Church in America French-speaking parish of Saint Benedict of Nursia (French: Saint Benoît de Nursie) worships in the basement of the church.
The church is part of the Conseil du Patrimoine religieux du Québec.
