Two Week Bulletin ~ July 6-7 & 13-14, 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.

Dangers of the Abortion Pill

Chemical abortion is dangerous for women. From September 2000 through December 2022, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recorded 4,218 “adverse events” caused by the process— including the deaths of 32 women. Although the FDA stopped requiring reports of non-fatal adverse events in 2016, a combination of pre-2016 required reporting and post-2016 voluntary reporting also indicates serious non-fatal consequences. These include 1,049 non-fatal hospitalizations, 604 cases of blood loss requiring transfusions, 97 ectopic pregnancies, and 418 infections of which 75 were “severe.” These numbers are likely underestimates, because many adverse events are experienced at home and treated in emergency rooms, where they are often reported as related to miscarriages rather than to abortion pills.
