This statue of St. John the Evangelist is in Calvary Cemetery on West Lake Road in Erie, PA.

St. John was one of Christ's twelve Apostles and the author of the fourth Gospel included in the New Testament. He was the "Beloved Disciple" who sat next to Christ at the Last Supper and stood by the cross during the crucifixion of Christ. It is believed that he outlived all of the other Apostles and was the only one not to die a martyrs death.
