Welcome

 
Welcome students and parents to a new school year at St. John the Baptist!  Please check here for daily updates on classwork and/or homework.  We are all eager to return to school and get back to normal.  There will no doubt be obstacles we must overcome, but we will turn those obstacles into crosses/sacrifices, and offer them up to Our Lord to be united with His cross.  Let us always remember, "Jesus, I trust in you."
