WE WELCOME YOU A gracious welcome to all parishioners, guests, and visitors! It is a pleasure to welcome you to our Parish to share a life of faith in Jesus Christ, Our Savior. This is the House of the Lord.


Our Religious Education program has been hosting a Diaper Drive during October for Respect Life Month. The last day diaper donations can be dropped off is this Sunday, October 22nd from 8:15am to 11:30am in the Parish Hall. Please help make this drive a success.

AN INVITATION TO SERVE
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the most important celebration of our Redemption. The priest, by ordination, is privileged to be the celebrant of this event as he is joined by members of the faithful.

Assisting the priest at Mass is the privileged role of the 'server.' While youthful members of our parish serve at some Masses, adults (men and women) are invited to join the current team of 'experienced' servers.

Please sign up on the clipboard in the Ushers Room if you wish to volunteer.

MEN'S CLUB MEETING
Take Me Out to the Baseball Game featuring Dr. Cesar Pellerano and Judge Louis Schiff. All men are welcome Tuesday, October 24, 7:00pm in the Parish Hall. Hot Dogs, Popcorn and Cold Drinks will be served. PLAY BALL!

Welcome to the Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church parish family. This website is designed to help you get to know our parish and to become part of our community. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to stop in at the parish office or talk with us after mass.

We continue to deepen in the strengths of the parish: prayer, worship, and education of our members in the ways of God. The power of prayer is directed to all the individuals of the parish. Our worship deepens our contact and relationship with God: our creator, rescuer, sustainer. Our young are taught the ways of faith by the example and stories of our lives with God.

We welcome you. We hope and pray that you will grow with us as we journey on our life's road to the Lord.

A Special Message

WORLD MISSION SUNDAY 2017, OCTOBER 21-22

Your ongoing support of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith is vital to the missionaries serving in 1,150 dioceses throughout Asia, Africa, parts of Latin America and Europe, and on the Islands of the Pacific. Your generosity makes it possible for local priests, religious, and catechists to reach out to communities, families and children in desperate need, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest of circumstances.

The World Mission Sunday celebration highlights the outreach of local churches through priests, religious and laity among the poor and marginalized half a world away. Life-changing help is provided to mission churches in territories covering more than half the globe.

Your prayers and generous support offered to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith on World Mission Sunday directly benefit the mission church – and help deepen your relationship with Jesus by helping so many missionaries around the world.
