Last Chance for Inquiry

Do YOU Know Someone Considering Becoming Catholic?

Do YOU Know Someone that has been Baptized but wishes to receive Confirmation and Eucharist?

Tell them about Inquiry!!

OR give us their name and we will contact them!

Inquiry is a chance for a person to find out if becoming Catholic is the right choice at this moment. Through some informal conversation we can answer questions and share information that will help them decide.

An Inquirer is not “signed up” to join the Church.

An Inquirer is not committed to meetings or classes.

NOW is the time to inquire if a person wishes to join us next Easter!


So contact us with your questions. We are here to help. Contact Scott Martin at the Faith Formation Center at  724-736-0158 or

St. Vincent de Paul Society

In this weekend’s Gospel reading, Jesus immediately stretched out his hand and caught Peter, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”

          “Please help the Society of St. Vincent de Paul bring respite and hope to the elderly who are not able to find relief from the summer heat and you will bring them faith and hope!”


Did you know that we have a St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry?   This pantry is filled with canned goods, boxed items, non-perishable goods, paper products, shampoos, soap, etc.   Donations to fill our pantry are always accepted by placing items in the back of the church near the statue of Mary, special drives are help throughout the year.

Also, a donation box is available in the back of church above the offertory table.  These funds make our efforts possible.  (box is emptied weekly)


Our St. Vincent de Paul Society meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month in the Faith Formation Building.   If you would like to help those less fortunate, please come and join us.

If you are in need of assistance, please contact the Parish Office at 724-736-4442 and a member of our society will assist you.

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.
