Welcome to Our Parish!

 

Welcome to St. John the Baptist Parish Burlington!

Welcome to our parish web site. Within these pages, you will find the information you need to feed your faith life and that of your family. At the same time, these pages will give you a glimpse of who we are and how our community lives out our Catholic beliefs together.

Saint John the Baptist is the oldest Roman Catholic Church in Burlington, serving the people in the central core. The Church itself is at the corner of Brant Street and Blairholm Avenue, about one kilometer north of Lake Ontario.

As a parish, we strive to grow in the love and knowledge of God, sharing his Good News with the world. We also work to be a loving and welcoming community, caring for all in need and always being faithful to Christ’s call.

Congratulations to Emma and Evan!

For being recipients of the prestigious Bishop’s Altar Servers’ Award, a certificate that is presented each year to students who serve on the Altar for an extended period of time and who have exhibited exceptional commitment and dedication. The presentation was made by Bishop Crosby in the Spring at Christ the King Cathedral

Both of these St. John School students were nominated by Father Sims who acknowledged the faithful service of these two young people who have been Altar Servers since Grade Four.
