WEEKLY SCRIPTURE

You are my shelter; you guard me from distress; with joyful shouts of deliverance you surround me. I will instruct you and show you the way you should walk, give you counsel with my eye upon you.

Psalm 32: 7-8

WELCOME TO ST. JOHN CATHOLIC CHURCH

We are a community of Catholic Christian believers, in communion with the Archdiocese of Baltimore. In the spirit of love, hospitality and social justice, we serve the people of the greater Westminster area.

We believe that through the faith we share, we become family to one another in Jesus. Through education, evangelization, charity and service, we are called to use our diverse gifts to grow together and encounter Jesus in word and sacrament.

Word From our Pastor

Welcome,

We are called to grow in our faith, be formed as disciples and help transform the world by the joy of the gospel. You are invited to join our parish family as we head to deeper waters, experience the presence of Christ and encourage one another to live a life worthy of the call we have received.  He is calling, let’s respond together as, “one body, one spirit in Christ.”

VBS Celebrates that We are Wonderfully Made By God

Our children discovered that they are lovingly crafted by God. On this interactive adventure, curious kids became hands-on inventors and experienced God - the ultimate maker - in new and wildly creative ways. Our LARGEST VBS yet: 350 children, young people and adults journeyed in faith together as the fun factory made disciples and called each participant to be a joyful proclaimer of the gospel! Rotating through 5 stations, taking part in fun interactive exercises, learning new songs and celebrating their faith brought the Bible and the teachings of Jesus to life. Our next Vacation Bible School "Shipwrecked" will take place June 18-22, 2018.
