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 Message From Fr. Peter

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Christ Is In Our Midst! This month we celebrate the incredibly beautiful and hope-filled feast of the Protection of the Mother of God. On this feast, we remember a miracle that took place in the 10th century in the city of Constantinople. In the middle of the night, as the faithful were praying, during a time of attack on the city, the Mother of God appeared in the Church and held her veil over the city in protection. As a result the enemy attackers fled and the city was spared. Fast forwarding to the 21st century, we also celebrate an incredible miracle associated with the Mother of God. This year, on the eve of the Feast of The Protection, we mark the fourth anniversary of another miracle… the myrrh streaming icon of the Mother of God Kardiotessa of Taylor, PA.

September Message From Fr. Peter

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Glory Be To Jesus Christ! It is hard to believe that the Summer is nearly complete and our youth and young adults have returned to school for another academic year. I am looking forward to a return to a more active parish life as we begin the new Church Year. As we begin the 2015-2016 Church School Program later this month, I ask all parents to do everything in their power to make the religious education of their children a priority. Regular attendance at Church School and Divine Liturgy and frequent participation in the Holy Mysteries of Confession and Communion is essential in the spiritual formation of serious, active Orthodox Christians, who will be equipped to carry their crosses in this spiritually difficult generation.

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