Festival of Roses
The Festival of Roses is the large annual fundraiser for Saint John the Baptist Parish. The Festival of Roses, more than any other event at Saint John the Baptist, brings us together as a community. The Festival is also highly important to the financial well being of the parish.
Festival Weekend is held the third weekend in May. This year it will be May 16 - 18, 2014. The Festival Weekend is for the whole family and the invitation is extended to the entire community.
There are many ways to help at the Festival of Roses! There are over 22 committees dedicated to providing fun activites for all ages and interests at the Festival. Committee Chairs are needed in order to plan and organize these fun events. Please take a look at our potential Committees List and see if there might be an event you would like to make happen for our Festival of Roses.

Saint John the Baptist Parish celebrated a Blue Mass on Sunday, February 16. Law Enforcement and Firefighters from all around the area came.
Fr. Denis expressed our gratitude in his homily "But certainly, the most heroic acts of courage are done by those who on a regular basis put their lives at risk while trying to protect others. To this end, let it be as a grateful community that we make a habit of praying for courageous men and women, especially those who have died or who have been wounded while performing their duty. Our indebtedness and support should also extend to the spouses, children, parents or anyone who worries about their safe return home"
