TOWERS RESTORATION CAMPAIGN
Repairs are underway on our church towers. During 2013, the limestone will be removed from the existing columns atop the towers, the steel inside repaired, and new cast stone columns installed. The work will take a year to complete. The goal of the Towers Restoration Campaign is $2,000,000 for this project and other needed repairs. Donations are tax deductible. Read the campaign booklet to find out how you can help.

Music at Saint Jean Baptiste
The most important aspect of the music ministry at the Church of Saint Jean Baptiste is its focus on the celebration of the liturgy. In the Eucharistic celebration, we strive to sing as one voice with the assistance of choirs, cantors, organist, and instrumentalists.
In addition, the Music Under the Dome series features occasional concerts of choral, organ, and instrumental music.
For your convenience, there is an elevator on the south side of the church for access from Lexington Avenue.
