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.
