Welcome to St. John Neumann Catholic Church!
Every Catholic church holds a special place in the hearts of believers. We go to our parish churches to encounter Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, both at Mass and in the tabernacle. We bring our babies there to have them brought into the family of God, and we bring our deceased loved ones there to pray for them on their journey home. Couples exchange and renew wedding vows in their parish church. The repentant sinner finds the consolation of the sacrament of Reconciliation. In their parish church, people find the support and nourishment that can only be given by other members of the Body of Christ.
Welcome to the parish church of St. John Neumann – 1825 households strong, 72 of which have joined us since July 2012! Pray with us, worship with us, walk with us as we grow in our identity as daughters and sons of a loving Father and faithful disciples of Jesus Christ!
Rev. Joseph MPR Cocucci, Pastor

St. John Neumann invites children to Maker Fun Factory VBS: Created by God, Built for a Purpose.
A summer kids' event called Maker Fun Factory VBS will be hosted at Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic School from July 10th to 14th. At Maker Fun Factory, kids discover that God made them - and for a purpose! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God's love, and test our Sciency-Fun Gizmos they'll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Funshop Finale that gets everyone involved in living what they've learned. Family members and friends are encourage to join in daily for this special time at 11:45 AM.
Maker Fun Factory is for kids form K to 5th grades or 5-10 years of age and will run from 9:00 AM to 12 Noon each day. The cost is $35/camper and $15 for each additional sibling. The fun will take place at Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic School. For more information call 410-208-2854.
As part of our 10th Anniversary year-long celebration, St. John Neumann Parish is putting together an updated photo directory. We will once again use photographer Jim Ritch and Disciplepix, and once again everyone who participates will be given a free 8 x 10 copy of their portrait. If you have not already done so, please sign up for a portrait session. Sign-up sheets are available in the Gathering Space.
