St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish and School has several available spaces for gatherings of various sizes which easily accommodate weddings, anniversaries, baptisms, confirmations, graduations, funerals and business meetings.  The following facilities are available:

The Panel Room is the signature gathering space.  Not only does it serve as the primary dining center for the school children but The Panel Room doubles as an important gathering place for many parish functions.

Seats 225 to 250 persons.

The Panel Room is shown at left.

mural5The Mural Room

The Mural Room is one of two available gathering spaces at St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish and School and derives its name from the wall-spanning mural on its eastern wall.

Seats from 80 to 100 persons.

The Founders’ Room

The Founder’s Room is another gathering space at St. John the Baptist Catholic School and Parish. Gaining its name from the series of portraits residing on the fireplace wall remembering the Priest pastors of St. John the Baptist throughout the years, The Founder’s Room provides a more intimate setting than The Panel Room or Mural Room and is ideal for smaller meetings or gatherings.  Seats 40 to 50 persons.
