50th Anniversary of the New Church Edifice

Welcome to the year-long celebration of the 50th Anniversary of our “new” church edifice!

In July we started our celebration with a golf tournament, our anniversary prayer, and consecration candles along with our patron saint day picnic.

During the Year we will be presenting historical information about the parish in the bulletin, on the parish website, and on the plaza monitors. We also plan on having some displays in St Paul Plaza and St Joseph Hall with newly discovered information about the new church. Look for “Did You Know?” articles in the bulletin for snippets of St. John’s history.

The year will conclude in June 2019 with a gala event to celebrate the feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist.

 

Recognizing Our 50+ Year Parishioners

Fifty years ago the parishioners of Saint John the Baptist celebrated the first Masses in our “new” church.  Today we have more than 200 individuals and married couples who were members of the parish in 1968 or earlier.  As part of our 50 Year Celebration, we have launched a Fifty-Year Club to recognize parishioners who have been members of the parish for fifty years or more.  We salute the following charter members of the Fifty-Year Club.  Thank you for your dedication that has helped to make Saint John the Baptist the vibrant parish it is today.
