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

Appproval of the Outdoor Celebration of Mass 

Dear Parishioners,


To God be the Glory!  I am happy to announce that we received the greenlight from the County’s Health Officer allowing us to have outdoor services with the maximum of hundred (100) people in a single gathering.  Masks are required and must be kept on at all time.  Please bring your own chair to sit on.  In this way, we minimize the risk of contamination and infection.  Mass will be celebrated at the grassy area (soccer field) behind the Gallagher Hall.   We will continue to ask parishioners to sign in upon arriving at the Mass venue for contact tracing purposes.


In consultation with Fr. Cleetus, starting this weekend, July 18, 2020, we decided to have four (4) Masses: 7pm (Saturday), 7am, 8am, and 7pm (Sunday). Daily Mass will be celebrated at 6:30am, Monday-Friday only.


Looking forward to celebrating Mass with you. For those of you who are able, please continue supporting our parish financially as generous as you can. You can continue mailing your collection envelops and for those who are interested in using our online giving, don’t hesitate to call Kashmir for help at: (916) 985-2065.


 In Christ,

Fr. Renier Siva, Pastor

Response to Outbreak

Across our Ministries


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.
