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