Welcome to St. John the Baptist

 

 

Discovering Christ 

 The faith-encounter with the person of Jesus Christ is a relationship



with Him” 
   ~Synod on the New Evangelization, Lineamenta, 11

 

 

 

 

       St. John the Baptist is pleased to now offer gluten free hosts.              If you suffer from gluten intolerance, please take a moment to place a special host in the ciborium on the offering table at the back of church.  If you need assistance, someone will help.   At the distribution of the Eucharist, those receiving the gluten free host   will approach first on the ambo side in the center.

 

       Please join us in welcoming Fr. Andrew Recepcion from the Diocese of Caceres in the Philippines.  Envelopes for this Mission Co-Op Appeal are available at the end of the pews or in the vestibule of church.   Your generosity in today’s second collection is greatly appreciated.

 

       We will be cleaning the church for the upcoming Advent and Christmas Season on Sunday, November 16th beginning at Noon.  Please consider assisting us with this project…..all extra hands are welcome and greatly appreciated.

 

       Training for new altar servers will be this Tuesday, November 4 during Religious Education.    This ministry is open to all youth in third grade and higher.   If you child would like to join this ministry or are not sure and would like to see what it involves,  please encourage them to attend this session.   Please contact Scott Martin or the Parish Office with questions.

Our Mission Statement

St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church is nestled in the historic town of Perryopolis, Pennsylvania. We are a church of diverse nationalities, a friendly community of caring, hardworking people, who have a passion and concern for fostering and strengthening family ties.

Our mission is to spread the Good News of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We do this through personal, communal and daily sharing of faith along the road of salvation; leading ALL to the treasure of graces in the Sunday worship and sacraments.

We seek to be Christian models for our children and communities while we ourselves are in faith formation, challenging ourselves to also meet the needs of the elderly among us.

Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we arrive to build a stronger community through our efforts at evangelization, leadership, stewardship and spiritual growth.
