100th Anniversary Celebration
The very first Mass at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church – St. Louis was celebrated in a building at 4626 Delor on February 1, 1914 by our founding pastor, Father John Peters. Parishioners, past parishioners and alumni gathered at 4:30 pm Mass on Saturday, February 1, 2014 with Bishop Edward Rice, Fr. John Keenoy, Fr. John Mayer and Deacon John Wolffer. Also in attendance was former pastor Fr. Ferdinand Wesloh and past associates, priests who grew up in our parish, sisters, past principals and teachers.
A dinner followed in the gym with our state representative Michele Kratky and alderwoman Carol Howard each presenting our parish with a 100th anniversary proclamation. (These proclamations now hang in the vestibule of church). The evening was full of fun, food and shared memories. The food was catered by Giuseppe’s on South Grand and the cakes were made by our alumnus, Mary Boehne, a pastry chef at the Four Seasons Hotel. Thank you to all who attended and to all who worked to make this celebration memorable. We are so proud of our parish heritage!
We have two display cases filled with memorabilia. One is located in the vestibule of church and the second, a much larger one, is located by the gym doors. The one by the gym is filled with memorabilia of our high school and grade school. This larger display case also holds a framed piece of Fr. Peters’ vestment.
We generally have Donut Sunday on the first Sunday of the month (except June, July and August). We invite you for a Sunday morning Mass at 7:00 and at 10:00 am and come to the cafeteria for a donut, social time and to view our display case.
