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.

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is in need of men and women to become involved with our Home Visit program.

  • Come to a Meeting:                   @ 2:00 P. M. Warren Room the 3rd Monday of each month
  • e-mail us at:                                     stvatsj@gmail.com
  • phone us at:                                     905-979-6460

To live the Gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice and joy.

WE COULD SURE USE YOUR HELP!
