Who we are

St. Jean Baptiste is a Roman Catholic Parish established in 1882 and staffed by the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament, an Order of men founded in Paris in 1856 by St. Peter Julian Eymard.

St. Jean Baptiste High School is administered by the Sisters of The Congregation of Notre Dame, an Order of women founded in Montreal in 1676 by St. Marguerite Bourgeoys.

We are an open Eucharistic Community based firmly on the pastoral principle underlying the Second Vatican Council: the Church is the People of God sharing in Jesus’ ministry of preaching, teaching and healing. It is our hope that each parishioner responds to the call to take part in the life of this parish in some way.

We want to minister to children, seniors, families and young adults. Our mission is to reach out to those searching for a spiritual home and to be a welcoming community for everyone. This is not only the ministry of the religious men and women at St. Jean’s; it is the ministry of the entire People of God.
