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.

Rev. Michael Parker, Pastor

Holy Week Greetings

     With our Palm Sunday celebration we enter into Holy Week and the most sacred time of our church year. The Triduum - Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil along with Easter Sunday are the center of our faith.

    Plan to join in during these days as we unite ourselves more fully in our mystery of faith through the passion, death and resurrection of Christ. We pray and celebrate as we remember the saving action of Christ. It is Jesus out of love for us that he would die that we could live.

      We gather together during Holy Week, then, to remember the saving act of Jesus, to celebrate the miracle of the resurrection as to embrace his promise of eternal life.
