OUR PARISH MISSION 

We the faithful of St. John the Baptist Parish, in communion with our Pope, Archbishop and Pastor, proclaim that Jesus Christ is the Light of the world. We desire to share His love with everyone in our community through our words and actions.

Through the many gifts we have received from the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, we strive to live Gospel values every day of this life in anticipation of the life to come. Our guides for this journey are:

  • Spirituality: We pledge to honor, obey and worship God in reverent celebration of liturgy, sacrament and prayer.
  • Personal Development: We proclaim the Good News so that all lives may grow in faith, from the elderly who are our foundation, to the young who are our future.
  • Community Service: We take up Jesus’ call to reach out to each other through the many talents we are given.
  • Stewardship: Our response to God’s love requires self denial and tithing to enrich the spiritual and physical life of our community.

We pray to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, through the intercession of our patron, St. John the Baptist, that the Word of God continues to be spoken and believed in our countryside, just as it was by the small and courageous community that preceded us more than two centuries ago.
