Photograph contributed by Linda Miko

St. John the Baptist Church of Portage began in 1915 when a determined group of Hungarian immigrants met to establish a church where they could hear their own language. In 1922, the charter members decided to locate the church at the corner of Johnson Avenue and Cambria Street in Portage Borough, which is where it is located today. The present pastor there is Father Ronald Yogus.

The cemetery affiliated with St. John the Baptist Church is located at the corner of W. Wesley Avenue and Cemetery Road in Portage Township. The cemetery features two levels divided by a road. The stairway to the second level lists "This approach was dedicated in loving memory of George J. Wasko by his family". The stairs lead to a large free standing Crucifix dedicated to the unborn -- as well as the second level.
