Baptismal Font -
Our new Baptismal Font was built in Pietrasanta, Italy, and blessed by the Most Rev. Joseph C. Bambera, Bishop of Scranton, during the celebration of Mass on Sunday, September 13, 2020.
Four square floor tiles have been installed to commemorate and honor the four parish communities which consoldated into Saint John the Evangelist:
Saint John the Evangelist
Founded 1854; originally Irish ethnic background
1890-2008; originally Lithuanian ethnic background
1909-2008; originally Polish ethnic background
Saint John the Baptist
1892-2008; originally Slovak ethnic background
Although physically, the churches may not still stand, our Parish community deeply cherishes and builds upon the rich history of the four churches. Each time a individual is baptized, they are welcomed into the loving community of the four churches that build up St. John the Evangelist Parish Community.
