Welcome to St. John the Baptist School


Prayer of Petition to Father Nelson H. Baker

We invite you all to pray every day for God's powerful healing love for two little boys, Ben Sauer (Clarence, NY) and Thomas Ackley (Alden, NY) who are suffering from brain cancer.

O God, Our Father, we praise and thank you for the gift of Father Nelson Baker, priest and disciple, who lived your will in faith and trust, and lived your love in service to the poor, the sick, the homeless and the young.

I pray in confidence that through his intercession, You will grant me the favor which I request.  You who lice and reign forever and ever.
