Rev. Eusebius Mbidoaka, Ph.D., S.T.D.
Thank you for your interest in St. John the Baptist Parish. We invite you to become involved with your faith life in our parish and continue your spiritual growth through the many resources offered here. St. John the Baptist Church offers weekday and Sunday Masses as well as Eucharistic Adoration. The parish has programs in education and pastoral ministry for children, youth and adults as well as a vibrant social ministry outreach. The programs and services of the parish continue to grow. St. John’s school provides an excellent education in an intentionally Catholic environment. Each new parishioner adds a richness to our faith community which allows us to reflect more fully the Body of Christ in today’s society.
