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 ...
I greet you with much joy as begin the New Church Year.
With Summer vacation over and our children and young adults back to school, parish life now shifts to high gear. Later this month our Church School program begins and we resume our Orthodox Boot Camp” adult education series. We also celebrate the Great Feasts of the Nativity of the Mother of God and the Exaltation of the Precious Cross, which set the tone for parish life in this new Church Year.
It was such a joy to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost with all of you! The services were spiritually uplifting and the Church, thanks to Karen Ivers was beautifully decorated with greenery. We were blessed to have a wonderful new addition to our Church temple for this feast, the beautiful icon of the Mother of God of the Sign, which was donated in memory of Helen Rowland.
