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 ...

Holy Week/Paschal Message From Fr. Peter

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Brothers and Sisters, Isn’t it interesting that the Church uses the adjective “Great” when it refers to the fasting season in preparation for the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord? As we know this season is referred to as either Great Lent or the Great Fast. From a human standpoint, we might legitimately ask what is so great about Lent? After all it is a time of deprivation and negative. What is so great about giving up some of the things we love so much: meat, dairy, sweets, and other pleasures and entertainments? What is so great about having to fit our busy weekday schedules attendance at the Wednesday and Friday Presanctified Liturgy and Paraklis Services?

Come Join Us For A Lenten Book Study!

Monday, February 29, 2016

Join us every Wednesday Evening at 6:30 pm beginning March 16 for the Liturgy of Presanctified Gifts followed by a lenten meal and discussion on our parish lenten reading book A Beginners Guide to Prayer By Fr. Michael Keiser. All parishioners are encouraged to read this excellent book during Lent even if they are unable to attend the weekly book study.

We cannot describe it to you; we only know that God dwells there among men and that their Service surpasses the worship of all other places..." In the latter part of the tenth century, Vladimir the Prince of Kiev sent envoys to various Christian centers to study their form of worship. These are the words...  Read More >>>
