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.



10TH ANNUAL HCCEF EVENING WITH BISHOP CROSBY – VIRTUAL EDITION

The HCCEF Evening with Bishop Crosby is always such a wonderful gathering of the Halton Community. Although we will not be able to meet in person this year, we can still gather virtually as a community.

Highlights of the evening include:

– A Reception with friends at your virtual “table”.

– Musical Entertainment by HCDSB students

– Recognition of Bishop Douglas Crosby’s 10th Anniversary of his installment as the Bishop of the Diocese of Hamilton

– Keynote address by Bishop Crosby

We want to be able to continue to say “yes” to supporting low-income HCDSB students and their families with basic necessities, because education directly influences students’ life chances – and life outcomes. Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed. We need your help to do this.

Wednesday November 4, 2020 – 6:30-8:00pm

St. John Talent Show 2020

For the last several years our St. John the Baptist Parish Men’s Group has hosted a spring Talent Show featuring mostly students from St. John School.

On each occasion the event enjoyed great success attracting a large number of parishioners, friends and families to watch these young people perform.

This year due to covid-19 restrictions our parish-school community was unable to offer the show in its usual format in the parish hall.

However, this unforeseeable situation did not stop the show from going on! Au contraire!

With imagination, modern communication technology plus hard work and initiative on the part of the students, their parents and the staff of St. John School the show did go on.

Please click on the link below to see the 2020 version of the St. John Talent Show.

Thank you students. You are the best.
