Our Sister Parish

Serving those Beyond our Borders. Pope John Paul had a vision of a future in which Catholics of North and South America would generously share their spiritual and material resources as neighbors of faith. With that in mind Saint John’s embarked on a sister parish project several years ago. Each year since, groups have traveled to the parish of San Pablo (Saint Paul) in the city of San Francisco de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. In May of 2011, a group which included two high school students and three college students brought loads of medicines and religious goods, spent joyful hours with children at an orphanage, met youth leaders at San Pablo, and visited chapels in very poor areas of the parish. Thanks to over $4,000 that was raised for the Dominican Republic, our group was able to witness the thrill of a young man being able to speak again with a voice device we bought; we also contributed to sister parish projects for their pastor, Fr. Oscar Pena.

Saint John the Baptist Parish is committed to supporting San Pablo de Apostol, our sister parish in the Dominican Republic, and its youth. To this end, please help us to help their youth to further their education. For further information on how to do this, please visit our Help Make Dreams Possible for DR Youth site.

Please become a part of our parish outreach to our sisters and brothers in the Dominican Republic by participating in a parish trip, hosting a student, raising funds for special projects or provisions, or assisting with hands-on work in the community of San Pablo de Apostol. To do so, please contact by email at: rpcadam@comcast.net or by telephone at: Pat Adam: (978) 532-1083

And please take this opportunity to view past and/or upcoming events listed below in fulfilling our commitment to San Pablo de Apostol.
