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 ...

December Message From Fr. Peter

Thursday, November 26, 2015

The month of December is upon us. The Church at this time of year invites us to take a spiritual journey with the Most-Holy Mother of God and the Righteous Joseph to the cave in Bethlehem where our Savior is to be born. This year, during the Nativity Fast, we have been challenged by our Father in Christ, Bishop Gregory, to be spiritually active Orthodox Christians.

November Message From Fr. Peter

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ! Christ is in our Midst! During the month of November we honor the memory of one of the most beloved saints of the twentieth century, St. Nectarios of Aegina. We have had a devotion in this parish and the Diocese to St. Nectarios for nearly a quarter of a century. Since assuming the pastorate at St. John’s in 1994, I have celebrated the Moleben to St. Nectarios on a monthly basis which has been a blessing for our parish. Throughout the Diocese, many miraculous healings have been attributed to St. Nectarios, especially those suffering from cancer. St. Nectarios stands as a beacon of light, manifesting the power of love and holiness.
