Welcome to St John the Baptist Parish

St John The Baptist Parish has been nestled in the foothills of The Dandenongs for over 100 years. Throughout our history we have endeavored to be a welcoming parish, encouraging one another through prayer, friendship and practical support, living our faith lives locally, in the wider community and the wider world.

Important Information

THE CURRENT COVID-19 GUIDELINES have been relaxed, and we are now permitted to celebrate Mass again, with a cap of 100 attendees per Mass. We will operate on a “First come First Serve” basis, and the doors will be closed once we reach the 100 person limit.  Covid Check-in is mandatory using the QR code. Masks must be worn, and hand sanitizer to be used. 

Community is everything

Through both challenge and change the people of St John’s have prayed and played together and showed their concern for each other and for all around them.  A parish is so much more than a fixed territory.  A parish is a visible and true expression of what it means to be Church. It is a community of people called and chosen by God to walk the way, to be faithful to what is true and just and to live the life of Jesus Christ, the Son of God who is our Lord.
