Precepts of the Catholic Church
The Precepts of the Church require the minimum effort we must make to be fully nourished by the liturgical life of the Church. All Catholics are called to move beyond the minimum by growing in love of God and love of neighbor.
The Precepts are as follows:
Attendance at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation (All Saints, Immaculate Conception, Christmas, etc.)
Confession of serious sin at least once a year
Reception of Holy Communion at least once a year during the Easter season
Observance of the days of fast and abstinence
Providing for the needs of the Church
December Special Celebrations, Prayers and Masses
Feast of the Immaculate Conception
Holy Day of Obligation - Dec 8
Mass Times: 6:30am, 8:15am, Noon, 7pm
Our Catholic community welcomes all to encounter Christ, experience His merciful love, and form true disciples
Welcome to St. John the Baptist Parish
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. Julius, 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…”
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Renier Siva

Jesus is Calling Us Deeper
HE PROMISES TO RESTORE AND RENEW HIS PEOPLE
Our world is hurting. We all need healing, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength.
Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist.
The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery herein the United States by helping us renew our worship of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

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.
