About the Parish
One of the oldest Roman Catholic parishes in Upper Canada, the first service was held in this historic building on Christmas Eve in 1848. Our Christian community actually predates the founding of Perth in 1816.

Map & Directions
Located on Wilson Street East, the Church’s spire is one of Perth’s dominating features. If you are coming in from Highway 7 you will discover that the Tay River splits Wilson Street into two parts. You will need to go east one block and then continue on through downtown Perth.
Parking & Accessibility
There is plenty of parking on the streets surrounding the church and in a parking lot behind the church. Access can be attained without stairs or obstructions from the parking lot, through a door on the north side of the building.
As followers of Jesus, we, the family of St. John the Baptist Parish, in union with the Holy Spirit, are dedicated to building a Christian Community by proclaiming God’s Word through service and prayer.
We will reach out and nurture the faith of all parishioners. We will respond to the needs of the community locally and globally. We will continue to foster the working together of home, school, parish. We will encourage active involvement in parish life.
