From The Pastor
Welcome to our new website!
It is exciting to announce that St. John the Baptist has a new Website. It took a lot of time and patience to have it done. Thank you Adria, Stephanie and Nick for your efforts, talents and input. This new website will help us keep up to date with all the announcements and all the news. We encourage all of you to check out our new website. You can find out and learn many new things and refresh your knowledge about many things you once new and maybe forgot them. We will be posting a lot of info on our new website.
We live in a time when everything around us changes. Every channel you turn to, every website you search, the only thing you hear is that our lives will change. It is necessary even for us to accept the reality that we will be living differently.
One can notice that for the past three months we have not been able participate at the Divine Liturgies on Sundays and Holy Days; we can view them on Facebook with many interruptions due to high demand. Even at this point we do not know when we will return to normal life and prayer. Any changes will be announced in the weekly bulletin and on the website.
I thank you for your prayers and patience during this challenging time. Please remember, God is with us.
