Our Mission

St. John the Baptist is a Roman Catholic parish founded by St. John Neumann where God is loved and present in the liturgy, the sacraments and the community, faith is enriched through our teaching and experiencing the gospel, all are welcome in the spirit openness, and generosity, and charity is extended through our ministry to all.

Parish Council

Parish Council is attempting to facilitate a way to make our weekend experiences even better. One suggestion that is being attempted is to have each organization take a few weekends a year to get their members to greet our community at the doors as they walk in on Saturdays and Sundays. Ideally, each group would take two or three weekends a year (perhaps a weekend that the group has an event after a mass to make it convenient). The council is asking that each group submit two weekends a year to the rectory (716-873-1122) that they would be available for.

Rev. Michael Parker, Pastor

Don't forget to mark your calendars for our annual summer festival, "Bash & Dash!" This year, it will take place on Saturday, August 16th from 3-11pm. See you there!

Congratulations and prayers to Deacon James Waggoner, who was ordained a permanent Deacon on Saturday, June 14th. Many blessings on your new ministry! Click here to see photos of Deacon Jim's ordination and first mass.
