St. John the Evangelist is a parish of the Anglican Diocese of Montreal in the Anglican Church of Canada in Montreal, Quebec, 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 parish of Saint-Benoît-de-Nursie, a French-language congregation of the Orthodox Church in America, worships in the Chapel of Our Lady of Walsingham in the church's crypt.

The church is part of the Conseil du Patrimoine religieux du Québec.[1]

The building has starred alongside Nick Nolte in the film Affliction, and in the Quebec science-fiction television series 'Dans une galaxie près de chez vous'. The building is located in downtown Montreal, nested within Université du Québec à Montréal buildings, and Quartier des Spectacles, at 137 President Kennedy Avenue, Montreal, Quebec, H2X 3P6
