Homily

Reflecting on God's Word.

The Sunday homily is a reflection on the Sunday Liturgical Readings and provides "food for thought" about the challenges of living as a Catholic in today's busy and challenging world. We learn how the Biblical readings are the center of the Christian way of life.

Some parishioners have requested copies of our weekend homilies and so as a service to them and to our shut-ins and to those who occasionally fall asleep during the homilies, some of those homilies here at Saint John the Baptist will be posted here.

4 Minute Mass Reflections

At the request of Bishop Wester each parish in the diocese has been asked to present a series of short talks on the structure of the Mass. These Four-Minute Reflections, following the Prayer after Communion, will hopefully help us, as the assembly, come to a better understanding of the Mass, and enable us to participate more fully, consciously and actively. They will not be sermons, but carefully prepared talks that over time will cover the key aspects of the Mass. Imagine a “class about the Mass” without ever leaving the comfort of your pew!
