St. John the Baptist our patron

Our church is dedicated to St. John the Baptist.  He is an important figure in the Gospels.

This video from Catholic.org give a good presentation of our patron.

Feast days

St. John the Baptist has two feast days on the Church calendar.  On June 24 of every year we celebrate his birth. Since scripture tells us the Elizabeth was in her sixth month when Jesus was conceived in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we celebrate John’s birthday 6 months and a day before Christmas.  We celebrate the death of John the Baptist on August 29.
