St John the Baptist R.C. Church
We the faith filled community of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church continue in the tradition of our patron saint in accepting the challenge to prepare the way of the Lord. In doing this, we draw strength from the Holy Spirit as we minister to one another though the power of sacrament, prayer, participation, and respect for each other in our spiritual growth.
Programs and Services
St John's was home to thousands of Catholic immigrants in its 140+ years and continues to this day. Its parochial school provided a quality education for thousands, including many current and past leaders in the Erie community. Today, we provide hospitality for homeless people, facilities for Head Start preschool programs and networking social space for various groups as we build on the foundations of our forebears.
