St John the Baptist RC Church, San Juan celebrated its feast day, The Nativity of St John the Baptist, in fellowship and vibrancy. June 24 marked the 186th anniversary of the parish. The celebration began with Holy Mass; Fr Jayson Grell FMI was the celebrant.
In his homily, Fr Grell urged parishioners and visitors to take leaps of faith and to grow in wisdom as John the Baptist did. “We must learn to listen to God and seek His grace. St John’s life sends a message of faithfulness to the whole world, as such we are called to account to Jesus by the way we live our lives,” said Fr Grell.
He encouraged the congregation to reflect on St John as a great servant of God and exhibit how we can apply his life to our own.
