Welcome to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church

These are unusual and difficult times, the parish of St. John the Baptist still wants to be a haven of hope and prayer for you

In compliance with The Governor’s Stay at Home directive, St. John the Baptist Catholic Church is closed from Saturday, March 28 Through Friday, April 10.

The Church Building will be open for pastoral care Monday through Friday from 2-6pm and Sunday 8am-noon. The adoration chapel is available for scheduled adorers ONLY.

Join Father Paul this Saturday at 4:30 pm and Wednesday at 8:30 am for live streaming of Mass on Facebook. You are also invited to join him as he reflects on one Station of the Cross, in detail over the next two weeks, as we prepare for Holy Week! He will post a video every day until Palm Sunday. You can watch both the Mass and Reflection live, or anytime when you are able, by visiting our Facebook page.
