Welcome to St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church's website!
Browse the tabs for information about Orthodoxy, weekly bulletins, and events.
We give thanks to God for the recent visit of His Grace, Bishop Paul of Chicago and the Diocese of the Midwest (of the Orthodox Church in America). On June 24, the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, Bishop Paul tonsured/ordained Joseph (Clyde) McKenzie a Subdeacon and ordained John Tutoki as our Parish's second Deacon (after Protodeacon Vladimir Maksimoff, of blessed memory). May God grant many years to His Grace, Bishop Paul, the Subdeacon Joseph, and Deacon John, their wives and families. And may God grant His blessing and peace upon our Church of St. John the Baptist in the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the salvation of our souls and all those in our community.
The Apostles Fast comes to an end on June 29 with the celebration of the Feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. These two luminaries of the Gospel on this earth lead our prayers and praises of God the Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. As the Apostle Peter confessed, our Church is built on the rock of Christ, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it (see Matt. 16:13-19).
