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.

Lenten Prayer

 Lord God of peace,

May this Lenten season be for us a time of

being sheltered by you in the wilderness,

so that we may emerge at Easter

into a world made new by the power

of Christ's resurrection.
