St. John the Baptist Church, Covington, WA
Reading other's reviews I had to join! This is NOT a Baptist Church! It is Roman Catholic! But NOT reflective of orthodox, traditional Roman Catholic. The 5:30 service, as are all services, is a Mass! The church's embracing and inclusive culture are so expansive that it has (as reflected in other reviews) lost it's Catholic identity. It has indeed become St. John, The BAPTIST, Church; with much hand-clapping, rhythmic swaying and gospel hymns; Do you believe!? (instead of the traditional Credo). Ok, if you are looking for that sort of thing, but a great disappointment if you are Catholic! At one children's Christmas liturgy/pageant, the lady in front of me presented her sniffing chihuahua to the Eucharistic Minister to receive the Sacred Host! The dog was passed over without any hint of disapproval and the Host was presented to the lady who then consumed it and returned to her seat.
