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.

February 2018 Message From Fr. Peter

Thursday, February 01, 2018

It is hard to believe that so soon after celebrating the beautiful feasts of The Nativity of Our Lord and Theophany, we have now begun our journey to another spiritually amazing season: that of Great Lent.

As the above hymn which is sung as the Season of the Great Fast begins teaches us, Great Lent is a wonderful gift from the Church. While it is true that Lent is spiritually challenging, its purpose is not to punish us, but rather help us. There is so much spiritual fruit for us to feast on, with the beautiful Divine services and the many opportunities for quiet time and reflection.

January 2018 Message From Fr. Peter

Sunday, December 31, 2017

II greet you with great spiritual joy as we conclude the beautiful and saving days of the Nativity Fast. I look forward to celebrating the deeply moving and spiritually uplifting services of Christmas with all of you. I especially enjoy the Vigil Service for the Nativity, when in the wee hours of the morning we sing the beautiful Christmas Canon that was composed by St. Cosmas of Maiuma.

In the ninth Ode of the Canon, which we repeat as the Hymn to the Virgin at the Christmas Liturgy, we proclaim the great mystery of the birth of our Saviour.

The Liturgy 

"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 >>>
