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.

Parish Food Drive for Partnership Westfooddrive

Our Parish will be holding a Food Drive for Partnership West Food Bank on Saturday, June 13 and Sunday, June 14, 2015.

St. John the Baptist Parish is one of the original founders of this food bank which, in close cooperation with the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, has been serving needy people who live in the core area of Burlington for over two decades.

The items most needed at this moment are:

Rice, Dried Beans, Canned Tomatoes, Canned Juices, Canned Pastas, Side Kicks, Canned Ham, Canned Salmon, Canned Tuna, Crackers, Cake Mixes, Baby Food

Please help by bringing items to the church and placing them on the two side altars. Your collective contributions will help struggling families who often find themselves in a more desperate situation than usual over the summer months when the food programs for children at school are not in effect.
