The Cathedral Church of St John the Evangelist, on Chapel Street is the Roman Catholic cathedral for the City of Salford and is known simply as Salford Cathedral.

It was originally built between 1844 and 1848 as St John's Church, Salford, its design, the first cruciform Catholic church to be built in England after the Reformation, was closely modelled on a number of noted medieval churches. Two years later, in 1850, St John's was elevated to cathedral status.

The Cathedral is a Grade II listed building (English Heritage ID:471539 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
