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.
CHERISH THE EUCHARIST!
Desirably, we need to introduce the young mind and heart to a love for the Holy Eucharist. Here, under the appearance of bread and wine, is the reality of the Real Presence of Jesus, the Redeemer. After the words of consecration by the priest, the body and blood, soul and divinity of Christ is ours to receive. What a privilege is ours that we can have such a close encounter with our God so often.
Humbly, we need to prepare ourselves for this individual audience with Our Lord and Savior. Whether child or adult, whether from a local village or the global one, we all need to see the Church as the instrument to bring the gift of the Eucharist to our daily lives. It is the Mass that matters! It is the Eucharist that will lead us to salvation. Cherish the Eucharist as truly the "Bread of Life."

PRAYER OF THE WEEK
Prayer for the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ
O God, who in this wonderful Sacrament have left us a memorial of your Passion, grant us, we pray, so to revere the sacred mysteries of your Body and Blood that we may always experience in ourselves the fruits of your redemption. Who live and reign with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
