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.

We Are Called to Share Our Time and Talents...

If you're looking to get involved in the parish, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer within our wonderful community. Perhaps you'd like to join one of our many ministries and parish organizations? Or would you prefer to participate in the Mass? Helping hands are always needed.

PRAY & GIVE Generously

CHRISTMAS BEGINS WITH CHRIST... He taught us to use our words and actions to set an example of loving and caring for other. This is a picture of the St. John's food collection that was donated to our Parish Outreach Food Pantry. THANK YOU to Mrs. Tracey Rambharose and her 6th Grade Class who spearheaded the drive! What a wonderful way to spread Christs message of comfort and joy. We will now be able to distribute even more to those in need this Christmas Season and through the cold months ahead!
