Welcome to SJBWelcome to Saint John the Baptist Roman Catholic parish in the diocese of Orange. Our parish is staffed by six Norbertine priests assigned by the abbey of Saint Michael in Orange. The Norbertines of Saint Michael’s follow the nine hundred-year-old traditions of the Canons Regular of Prémontré, founded by Saint Norbert. Their primary work, as a Religious Order, is the reverent public chanting of the choir office. In addition to this, the priests serve in the parish church and its grammar school.

There are three main language groups (English, Spanish, Vietnamese) ministered to within the parish through Masses, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, prayer groupsvolunteer opportunities and social events. Our primary goal is to make ourselves, together with our parishioners, saints. If that is your goal also, come join us!

Need Anointing?
Parishioners who are in "remote" or "near" danger of death, or will undergo a serious operation, should request the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick (sometimes referred to as "the Last Rites" or "Extreme Unction").  It is best received when the sick person can still fully participate. Do not contact the priests directly, but call the main office and give the information to the secretary, including the preferred language.  In case of an emergency outside our normal business hours, call the number provided in the parish office's phone menu.
