Saint John the Baptist Orthodox Church was founded in Rochester NY on the Sunday of the Myrrh-bearing Women in 1964. That year, a group of Orthodox faithful joined together with the desire to establish a parish where the Divine Services would be conducted entirely in the English language. Faithfully enduring many difficulties and overcoming obstacles, the parish grew and found a home at its current location, a truly inviting and lovely place of worship centrally located and easily accessible from the entire greater Rochester area. At the beginning of 2014, the parish launched an Evangelism Task Force comprised of twelve members from teenage to eighty. On Wednesday, 12 November, the ETF met with Father John Parker (Chairperson of the OCA Department of Evangelization).
