St. John the Baptist Parish is part of Stearns County in Minnesota which is part of the diocese of St. Cloud. We are joyful in our Benedictine traditions as a shared community with St. John and St. Benedict Universities nearby. Recently, our parish has been twinned with a local parish in Avon, MN also named St. Benedict. Overjoyed by the growth of both parishes, Fr. Greg Miller, the staff and our parishioners together are passionate about serving others in our area. 

 St. John the Baptist parish is open from 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM Tuesday through Friday.

To set up an appointment with any of our staff members or to rent one of our spaces, please call us at 320-363-2569.
