A landmark in the history of Catholicism in this area, St. John's Church stands as a tribute to the zeal of its first pastor, the heroic Fr. John Bapst, and to those courageous pioneer Catholics of some one hundred years ago who lived in an era of hostility and persecution. Dedicated in 1856 by Bishop Bacon, it gives eloquent testimony to their faith in the midst of insurmountable obstacles. Intimately associated with the history of St. John's are those spiritual leaders designated by God to carry on the work of the Rev. John Bapst.
