St John The Baptist Parish Ferntree Gully

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

We are in a “COVIDSafe Summer” phase, and restrictions are in place. In our church – the density quotient has been carefully measured, and with the QR code registration allows us 220 attendees. Bookings are no longer necessary.  Attendance will be on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to Mass, to sign in and sanitize. Once we reach our allocated number, the doors will be locked. IMPORTANT: Under no circumstances, should anyone awaiting a Covid-19 test verification attend a church or parish. Additionally, anyone who is closely connected to a person awaiting test results or who have tested positive should not attend Mass.

Please see the Holy Week timetable under the Newsletter link for all Mass times.    We wish you a Happy and Holy Easter.

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.
