Online Offertory Giving Available
St John the Baptist Church has set up an online offertory option with OSV (Our Sunday Visitor), the company we use for the weekly envelopes. Please consider giving online.
We, the Roman Catholic Parish of Saint John the Baptist, choose to respond to our baptismal call to live and share the message of the Gospel.
We strive to accomplish this through building community, discovering our unique gifts as we serve others, gathering for worship and being sent out to witness.
Mass is Now Open to ALL; Online Mass Videos Will Continue
Masks are not longer required. We are asking that non-vaccinated still mask (or anyone not comfortable with non-masking).
There is no longer a need to call to pre register, and we are allowing people to self seat. We still encourage social distance but all will be allowed to attend mass.
Sanitizing will still be continued at this time.
Calendar of Events
We have a Tri-Parish calendar available which lists all the events in our church cluster.

This has been suspended for now.
