Welcome to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, a formerly Anglican, now happily Catholic parish in the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter. The Ordinariate is the North American
diocese created by Benedict XVI for formerly Anglican parishes like ours. We are obedient to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church in all things. Our beautiful and traditional liturgy, which seeks to preserve elements of Anglicanism within the Catholic Church, is approved by the Vatican for use in the Ordinariate. We are permanently settled in Bridgeport, PA and serve the Philadelphia area.
Sunday Mass is at 10 a.m. at 502 Ford Street in Bridgeport, PA. For Mass during the week, see our complete schedule. Changes to our schedule, if any, will be listed in the Announcements section below.
At 7 p.m. on September 24, feast of Our Lady of Walsingham
, a Solemn Choral Mass in the Ordinariate Form will be celebrated at the Cathedral Basilica of Ss. Peter & Paul in Philadelphia. Details here
Our youth choir
is open to middle school and high school students of all musical abilities. Rehearsals are on Thursdays 5:30-7 p.m. (supper provided). More information here
