Directions From Major Routes


St. John the Baptist Church is located in Canonsburg, Washington County, Pennsylvania. She is located less than 1 mile from exit 43 (Houston) on Interstate 79. This is approximately 7 miles north of the junction of Interstates 79 and 70 in Washington County.

From Interstate 79

Take exit 43 Houston. At the stop sign, turn left. A few hundred yards down the road (Rt 519) turn right at the second street. This is Boone Ave. It turns up a hill. Pass Canon-McMillan High School and cross over Interstate 79. The parish is on the left a few hundred feet beyond the entrance to Canonsburg General Hospital.

From Route 19

Approximately midway between Donaldson's Crossroad and Washington, exit to Route 519 North. Follow signs into Canonsburg (Route 980). As the street (South Central Avenue) begins to descend the hill into Canonsburg, turn left onto Boone Avenue and go up a small hill. The church will be visible from that point on your right hand side.

Parish Life Amid COVID-19
As of March, the parishes of our archdiocese have been blessed to return to normal liturgical and social life as each parish has seen fit, and at our June parish council meeting we resolved to finally make this move for our parish.  What does this mean?
  • Masks are now optional; those who wish to continue wearing them are welcome to do so, and will receive the full support of the parish in this personal choice.
  • Regular veneration of icons and the Cross at the end of services will resume; those who wish to refrain out of caution are welcome not to venerate icons, and should simply bow their head and receive a blessing with the Cross as we have been doing
  • Normal use of the communion cloths will resume; paper towels will still be available for those who wish to continue to use them as we have been doing.
  • Kissing the chalice at Holy Communion will now resume; Fr. John and the deacons will hold up the chalice for veneration, but feel free to refrain if uncomfortable.
