Welcome to the Whiting Catholic community which now includes the parishes of St. Adalbert and the historic St. John the Baptist (est. 1897). Since 1921 the Missionaries of the Precious Blood religious order have served this community by sharing the mission and ministry of their founder, St. Gaspar, and his charism of reconciliation. We invite you to explore our family here!
