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!
