Welcome to Saint John XXIII

St. John XXIII Catholic Parish exists to foster a lively encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ, through the Sacraments, particularly the Eucharist, Prayer, Service and Fellowship. We invite you to come to our parish and allow yourself to be changed by the love that Jesus Christ has for you.


The first Sunday in September, we will begin the new Mass times.

Sunday, September 5, 2021, our Mass schedule will be:  

8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

There is no change to the Saturday Mass; Reconciliation at 4:00 p.m. and Mass at 5:00 p.m


As we move beyond the worst of the Coronavirus pandemic and access to the COVID-19 vaccine has become more widespread, the time has arrived for the good of all the faithful when the general dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation is no longer necessary. Together, the Bishops of Ohio have decided that the general obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation (including the Saturday/Vigil Mass) is to be reinstated (CIC, can. 1247). This will take effect in each of the Dioceses of Ohio the weekend of June 5-6, 2021. As has always been the case, those who have a serious reason are exempt from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2181). This includes those who are ill, have significant health risk factors or care for someone who is immuno-compromised or ill, as well as those who have significant fear or anxiety of contracting the Coronavirus in a large group of persons. Nevertheless, these persons should observe the Lord’s Day (CIC, can. 1247) and are encouraged to spend time in prayer on Sunday, meditating on the Lord’s Passion, death and Resurrection; an appropriate way to do this is through viewing a broadcast of the Sunday Mass. Masses that are broadcast through various media are not intended as a substitute, nor do they fulfill the obligation for the persons who are able to gather for a Sunday celebration and other Holy Days of Obligation. Instead, they are intended for the sick, homebound, the imprisoned, etc., who are unable to attend Mass in person. Kindly consult your pastor with any specific questions regarding the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation.
