Welcome to St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church! Located in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Tryon, NC and dedicated in October 1911 by Benedictine Abbot Leo Haid, the church has been recently enjoying a renovation so incredible that it could only have been inspired by Divine Providence.
Confessions will be available Saturday 8am - noon. Cars can queue up on Lanier street such that the car in front can drive up to the porch outside the kitchen where Father will be. If you have multiple family members in your vehicle, when it is your turn, instead of driving up to the porch, individuals may walk up one-by-one until the last member drives through and picks everyone up.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will again be offered at Harmon Field on Saturday, March 28 at 4:30pm and Sunday, March 29 at 9:30am. The entrance to this area of the park is between the tennis courts and the Arts Center. You are kindly asked to stay in your vehicles. This message will be updated if a change in venue is required.
