Welcome to the website for Saint John the Baptist Parish. Our parish is made up of members from Lesterville and Sigel (rural Utica). My name is Rev. Mark Lichter. We belong to the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls and are under the guidance of the Most Rev. Donald E. DeGrood. May God bless you and continue to guide, guard, and protect you and your families. Saint John the Baptist and Saint Agnes, pray for us!
We welcome Retired SR. Rev. Kenneth Koster who will be serving the parishes to help out Father Mark Lichter.
THANK YOU Father Ken Koster!
