Saturday: 3:15 pm
The feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist is annually celebrated on June 24th. Since it is a Sunday this year, this feast supersedes the usual Sunday of the year. John was born of Zechariah and Elizabeth who both concluded that they would have no children due to their advanced years. God’s wondrous hand is seen at work. When Mary visited Elizabeth, both were with child; John leaped in his mother’s womb due to the nearness of the Christ in Mary. John later baptized Jesus thereby signifying Jesus as new life for the world. John would present Jesus to the world as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. We celebrate the birth of John to recall the nearness of Christ who indeed takes away sin from individuals and the world. Join us for Mass at 10:00 a.m.
