Welcome To St. John's Church

Welcome to Saint John The Baptist Orthodox Church. We are a parish of the Orthodox Christian Faith which was established on the day of Holy Pentecost in the Year 33 AD. Our parish community is a member of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the U.S.A. whose presiding bishop is His Grace, Bishop Gregory of Nyssa. The American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese is an autonomous diocese under the spiritual protection of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople of which His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I is the Primate.

Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to the worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers. We hope you will consider paying us a visit and joining us for worship.   Learn More ...

2017 Holy Week/Paschal Message From Fr. Peter

Friday, April 14, 2017

It is hard to believe that we are now in the final days of Holy Week!

I have been very pleased this year to observe the seriousness with which you, the faithful of this community, are walking on the path way of the Great Fast. Not only has attendance been greater at the various Lenten services, I see in the calm demeanor of so many of you the fruits of the three pillars of Lent at work in your lives, that of Prayer, Fasting and Good Works.

I have enjoyed our discussion of our Lenten reading book The Way of The Pilgrim. The Pilgrim’s quest for intimate communion with God in unceasing prayer has inspired us to become more zealous in our own prayer life.
