Celebration of Masses Returning

Dear Parishioners,

By now, I’m sure you already heard the good news.

The suspension of the public Masses has been lifted starting June 8, 2020.  In consultation with the Liturgy Committee, together with Fr. Cleetus, these decisions had been made:

1) In order to accommodate the spiritual needs of all parishioners, Fr. Cleetus and I will be celebrating Mass simultaneously; one in the Church, the other will be in the Gallagher Hall. Mass will also be telecast in the Parish Hall. This is in compliance with the Diocesan guidelines instituted by state ordinances, which allows the gathering of a maximum of 100 people per facility. Once the maximum number is reached, no one will be permitted to enter the facility. Ushers will be available to direct the person/family to the next available venue.

2) Starting June 13 & 14, 2020, weekend Mass schedules will be modified temporarily as follows: Saturday Vigil Mass (5pm), Sunday Masses (8am), (10am), (12noon). These hours will allow the traffic through the three venues to go smoothly. At the same time, this schedule will allow time for the cleaning crew to sanitize the Church, Gallagher Hall, and Parish Hall in between the services. Temporarily, there will be one daily Mass to be offered at 8:15am, beginning June 15, 2020.

Upcoming Events

Upon the advice of health officers from state and local counties Bishop Soto has directed

that celebrations and gatherings  are canceled until further notice.


We are a community of faithful Catholic believers, serving one another in Christ as a spiritual family. Our variety of ministries allow all to live out their faith and grow spiritually by offering their gifts to those in need. 


Our youth group is a place for teens to come and learn about their faith in a fun and casual environment. St. John's is the place youth can turn their day to day life into a powerful communion with Christ.


Each ministry strives to bring everyone into a closer relationship with Christ while simultaneously empowering you to make an immediate impact on our parish community and the society in which we live.​


As Catholics, we are encouraged to fully participate in our faith, not just by attending mass and receiving the Sacraments, but to help spread the Word.

Many opportunities are available for this: Join a ministry, invite friends to consider the faith, join a study group, attend Church events, help all the

programs with financial support, your talent and your time.  Help us build

the Kingdom of God by sharing the time, talent and treasure

God has entrusted to you.


We the people of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church are committed to being a dynamic and welcoming family. We respond through active ministries as a reflection of God's love and witness to the Gospel in prayer, word, and deed.
