Pastor's Welcome

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Saint John the Baptist family! Our heavenly patron, Saint John the Baptist, proclaimed, “Behold, the Lamb of God.” We are a vibrant and mission driven parish seeking to follow in the footsteps of our patron who never tired of directing others to Christ who is our hope, our reconciliation, and our peace.

Our parish family manifests the presence of Christ firstly in the celebration of the Sunday Eucharist, which is the heart of our life. Strengthened by our communion with Christ and one another, we are sent forth into the world. We follow Christ’s call to educate through our school, our religious education program, and many other faith formation offerings. We respond compassionately to the needs of our brothers and sisters through our parish outreach programs, parish counselors, clothing bank, and as the host of the ecumenical Southern York County Food Pantry. We continue to grow closer to Christ through our Corpus Christi Perpetual Adoration Chapel, through our Bible study, and prayer groups.

This great work done through the grace of God happens in the beautiful campus which holds our Main Church, Historic Church, Parish Education building, and Parish outreach building. Our commitment to growing as disciples is reflected in the growth of our buildings and parish campus over these last few years.

Our parochial school opened in September 2010 and offers a Catholic Education for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6. Along with our Religious Education Program and Youth Ministry, we are committed to leading our youth to Christ in a safe environment that inspires and nurtures them.

Your presence at Saint John's is welcomed! Please feel free to visit us and see what makes our parish family so warm and vibrant. We want to share with you the gift that has been so graciously given to us from above!

Fr. Mark Wilke, Pastor
