The Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ ~ Corpus Christi ~ June 1-2, 2024

We the parishioners of St. John the Baptist,

brothers and sisters in Christ, accept as our mission:

to know our faith and share it with others, to continue to grow spiritually with respect for the sacraments, to celebrate the liturgy and the Holy Eucharist  as the center of  our Christian life, to live by truth and love, to serve those in need, to teach by example, and thereby strengthen and inspire our Parish family in accordance with the Roman Catholic Church.


Masses will be at the Chapel of St. John Nepomucene, until church renovations are completed.

“Christ’s blood reveals to man that his greatness, and therefore his vocation, consists in the sincere gift of self. …It is from the blood of Christ that all draw the strength to commit themselves to promoting life. It is precisely this blood that is the most powerful source of hope, indeed it is the foundation of the absolute certitude that in God’s plan life will be victorious.”    ~   Pope Saint John Paul II
