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

Due to the government restrictions of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Mass will be celebrated in our church, but with a limit of 20 places per Mass, until 12th July 2020 pending trending health concerns and advice. Please ring the Parish Office to book a place on Wednesdays.

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.
