St. John the Baptist is a Roman Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Corpus Christi. As a Catholic community of faith, we know that the Mass is central to our lives. Through the Eucharist, we celebrate Christ’s saving love for us and for all. We know that in the Mass, Christ is truly present through the words of Sacred Scripture, through the presence of the priest, through one another as the Body of Christ, and in a special way in the bread and wine which become the Body and Blood of Christ our Lord. Our parish recognizes that such amazing love calls for great response, and so we have committed ourselves to be good stewards of all God’s many blessings. We offer ourselves in service within this parish and in our city and world; St. John the Baptist is a community of disciples and stewards who are on a lifelong journey of faith together.
St. John the Baptist is a parish in which you can truly belong! Whether you are just beginning to explore Catholicism or have been Catholic all of your life; whether you have stayed on the fringes of parish life in the past or are already involved in ministry; St. John the Baptist is a parish that values you. As a community, we care for one another, knowing that through our ministry we perceive Christ’s presence among us. With the support of one another as Church, we serve those most in need in our city and world, through direct service, collections of food, clothing, and gifts, and through monetary contributions in mission, as we help to contribute to the reign of God in our world.
