John XXIII College has supplied the ANU with a Catholic Chaplain since 1958.  Since 1967, a Dominican Friar has been assigned to the spiritual and pastoral needs of College residents.

 The St. John the Evangelist Chapel is the focal point of the College’s contribution to the ANU’s chaplaincy service.  Weekly masses and the sacraments are administered by the College Chaplain, Father Laurie Foote.
