Stewardship Opportunities

Stewardship is a way of life - something we practice in a dozen little ways every day. St. John the Baptist is a "stewardship parish." We, as Catholics, are called to live out our Gospel values in small ways and large; each member putting their God-given gifts and talents to use. To see a list of some of the ways you can put your gift of time to use see our Stewardship Opportunities Catalog. Use the Stewardship Form to signup.

Safeguarding All of God's Family

The goal of the "Safeguarding All of God's Family" program of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is to protect our children and all in the church family from sexual abuse and related dangers. Compliance with this directive is closely monitored by the archdiocese.  Please help us stay in compliance by attending a session if you volunteer.

Anyone who works with children through the school or church is required to attend this program. Pre-registration is required. For more details, visit the SJB website.

What Does Evangelization Mean For Me?

The New Evangelization is a process in which we come to grow in a greater knowledge of our faith.  In doing so, we are able to live out our faith in a greater way.  Finally, by being a living witness to our faith in the world we will help others to draw closer to God and His Church. The New Evangelization is an opportunity, a pilgrimage (journey) to rediscover the joy and confidence of believing in our Lord and to enthusiastically profess that faith as a true encounter and relationship with Jesus Christ. Transmitting the faith means to create in every place and time the conditions which lead to his encounter between the person and Jesus Christ.  Essentially, the New Evangelization will that will help all the youth as well as adults to come to know the faith, to live the faith out, and to be able to speak about the faith with confidence to invite people into the Church.

Church History

Built in 1896, and formerly known as St. George, this parish was once part of the Green Bay diocese. In 1967, a new building was built to accommodate those from both parishes of St. Fridolin of Glenbeulah (1865) (see pictures below) and members of St. George in Elkhart Lake. On July 1, 2001, St. Fridolin and St. George merged to become the parish now known as St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Fridolin is still maintained and can be utilized for special functions. It is located at 210 N. Dillingha.m., Glenbeulah, WI 53023.
