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.

WANTED and NEEDED NOWSSVP Logo

 

If you have recently retired and are looking for a worthwhile, rewarding way to “pay back” by volunteering, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul might be the perfect option for you.

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is in need of men and women to become involved with our Home Visit program. Our St. John Conference has been actively helping people in our parish area and beyond for over five decades. However, we have reached a point where our Membership has declined substantially and we find ourselves with fewer people to respond to all the calls for help that we receive.

To find out more:

  • 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

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is a lay Catholic organization whose mission is:

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

WE COULD SURE USE YOUR HELP!
