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

Eight Great Dates
What is “Eight Great Dates”? Designed by Londoners Nicky and Sila Lee in 1985, the Christian-based program helps married couples learn practical tools for enhancing the health of their marriage by giving them a chance to discuss important issues often ignored in the rush of daily life. Each evening begins with a meal at your own private table. Dinner is followed by a DVD presentation with exercises and questions for each couple to discuss privately. There is no group work and no need to share anything about your marriage with the larger group.
Who is it for? It’s for any married couple who wants a strong and lasting relationship with each other; it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been married.
Cost? The price is $225 per couple and includes seven meals (for two) plus all materials.
Where? Cafeteria at Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic School.
Dates: September 24, October 1, October 8, October 15, October 22, October 29, November 5, and November 12.
Dinner will be served at 6:00PM sharp; the program will finish by 8:00PM sharp. Babysitting will be provided for a nominal fee.
Questions: Call Nancy Groves, Director of Religious Education, at 410-208-2854.
Space is limited-register by September 11!
