  • Get Connected

    We are very excited to bring a new way to stay connected with St. John the Baptist Catholic Church to our community. We want to bring the mobile app OneParish as a gift to all of our parishioners to help us flourish and grow, both individually and as a community. It is entirely free for you to download and is available for all Android and Apple smartphones (search for “oneparish” in the app store to find it). It is our hope that you will download the app and explore the ways in which we can grow together through prayer, personal reflections, and stewardship of our parish. Stay informed of church events by checking the parish calendar within the app and have the ability to tithe directly from your phone. We truly believe this can be a great tool to grow together and can’t wait to see the blessings it brings.
