A beacon of faith
St. John is the oldest parish in the Archdiocese of Baltimore founded in 1763. The present church is the oldest consecrated Catholic Church in the area, and we are the mother church of the other Catholic parishes of Frederick County.
But St. John is so much more than just a museum of the past but a vibrant beacon of faith right now. Our bell tower is the highest spire in Frederick and can be seen from Rt 70. It symbolizes what we have been and continue to be a beacon of faith and God’s Love to all.
