About Us

The Parish Family of St. John The Baptist Catholic Church in Milwaukie, Oregon, Welcomes you to visit our Website.

St. John's is a spiritual home for about 785 families, a fairly large community with warm and caring hearts in the Archdiocese of Portland in Western Oregon.

St. John's Church is a worshipping family of one mind and heart. St. John offers its parishioners and neighbors a "Grace House" - the 24x7 Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel with adorers finding peace and serenity before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

In browsing our Church's website, you will find that it has a strong pastoral program and also a great social outreach program. Our ministry extends from sacramental preparation for children to adult faith formation.

St. John's also has its own Parochial School from pre K through grade 8th with great opportunities to excel intellectually and be anchored spiritually.

Everyone is welcome to join us to worship "Our Awesome God" during weekday or Sunday Liturgy, details of which you will find on this website. Thank you for visiting us on cyberspace and hope you will be inspired to visit us in person at St. John's.

And whether you are leisurely browsing, seriously searching or appreciating our ministry work, we want to assure you that behind this screen is a strong faith community to welcome you, support you, and pray for you.

God's many blessings to you. For today, "Choose Peace."

In Christ,

Reverend Jorge Hernandez, OFM
