Welcome to our Parish
Welcome to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church! We are grateful to have you visiting our site today. St. John's is committed to helping all in New Haven, Fort Wayne or any visitors grow in the love of Christ.
We believe, in partnership with the Universal Catholic Church, that a life centered on Christ is a life of joy and meaning, and is the only way to know peace, purpose, and the fullness of life. We are committed to helping our parishioners and visitors live out this kind of a life, and we do so especially by offering the sacraments, working to develop inner lives of prayer, building up our young people in our excellent Catholic School (select "School" on our home page for more info), and by offering a number of ministries.
St. Paul wrote in Romans, "In hope we were saved. Now hope that sees for itself is not hope. For who hopes for what one sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, then we wait with endurance" (8: 24-25).
The Catholic Faith is a faith of hope in Christ, a faith that waits with endurance for and in the salvation of Christ. Our community seeks to help everyone in their endurance and to know and live out greater hope, faith, and love.
