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 ...

October 2017 Message From Fr. Peter

Thursday, September 28, 2017

It is good to see parish life returning to a more active pace as we begin the New Church Year. Thankfully Church attendance has picked up I am thrilled that we had a nice group of people taking part in the weekday holy days of the Nativity of the Theotokos and the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Having a core group of people honoring these feasts is good for the spiritual health of our parish. These feasts give us an opportunity to thank God for his many blessings, and strengthen us in our resolve to grow spiritually.

I greet you with much joy as begin the New Church Year.

With Summer vacation over and our children and young adults back to school, parish life now shifts to high gear. Later this month our Church School program begins and we resume our Orthodox Boot Camp” adult education series. We also celebrate the Great Feasts of the Nativity of the Mother of God and the Exaltation of the Precious Cross, which set the tone for parish life in this new Church Year.

"We knew not whether we were in heaven or on earth, for surely there is no such splendor or beauty anywhere on earth.
