Our Catholic community welcomes all to encounter Christ, experience His merciful love, and form true disciples

Welcome From Fr. Renier Siva

Fellow Parishioners,

The scripture tells us that when John the Baptist saw Jesus, he exclaimed (perhaps pointing at Jesus too) saying: “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” (Jn 1:29) We, the St. John’s Parish family are called to do the same---to direct and point others to the merciful lamb of God---Jesus Christ the Lord---through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. 

On behalf of Fr. Cleetus, Fr. Haran, Deacon Bill, Deacon Jim, and the Staff of the Parish, my sincerest welcome to all who wish to join the St. John’s Parish community. I hope and pray that you will find St. John the Baptist your spiritual home; that here, you will feel the care and compassion of our merciful and loving God, our Heavenly Father.

On that same note, I encourage the long-time and new parishioners to work diligently and patiently with us.

Together, we can achieve all things for the greater glory of God. 

“Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a single wheat…”

ABOUT OUR CHURCH

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. 

YOUTH/YOUNG ADULT MINISTRIES

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.

MINISTRIES

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.​

HELP US TO SPREAD OUR
LOVE AND FAITH

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.
