Mission Statement

St. John the Baptist family of parishioners is a faith filled Catholic Christian community which believes in the Lord Jesus Christ, in His Church and its teachings, under the direction of our spiritual leaders.  We watch and pray as we follow His call to love, life, fellowship and holiness.  We aspire to worship together, welcoming all people to a joyous celebration of liturgy and to our traditions of faith and morality.  We call on the Holy Spirit to help us use our gifts, talents and treasures in service to the needs of others in Alden and in the global community.

Thank you for your interest in our parish.  Whether you are just visiting us for a brief time, looking for a new parish home, are returning to the practice of your Catholic faith or are interested in finding out more about the Catholic Church, we are happy to have you here.

A parish is a community of believers and a spiritual family that is supportive and loving.  It can be a place to grow spiritually, to put your faith in action, and to use our gifts of time and talent as disciples of Christ.  We look forward to answering any questions you may have.  In the meantime, please look through the resources we have made available on these pages:
