This statue of Saint John the Apostle is located at Mount Calvary Cemetery on Highpoint Drive near Coal Center, Pennsylvania. The statue is near the main entrance to the cemetery, in a row of 19 statues of saints and Old Testament prophets. The statue depicts Saint John holding a book, representing his role as an evangelist and author of multiple New Testament books.

Saint 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. Four books of the New Testament are attributed to him, including a Gospel, three Epistles, and the Apocalypse (Revelation). His feast day is celebrated on December 27th.
