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
Pope Francis' Request to All of Us for October 2018
"The Holy Father has decided to invite all of the faithful, of all the world, to pray the Holy Rosary every day, during the entire Marian month of October, and thus join in communion and in penitence, as the people of God, in asking the Holy Mother of God and Saint Michael the Archangel to protect the Church from the devil, who always seeks to separate us from God and from each other."
The Holy Father asks us "to conclude the recitation of the Rosary with the ancient invocation "Sub Tuum Praesidium", and with the prayer to Saint Michael Archangel that he protect us and help us in the struggle against evil [cf. Revelation 12, 7-12]."
"Sub Tuum Praesidium"; "We fly unto Thy protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin."
Prayer to St. Michael: "Saint Michael Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls."
On Monday, October 8th, daily mass will be celebrated at 8:30AM. In observance of Columbus Day, the parish office will be closed.
CATHOLIC BIBLE STUDY
THE EPISTLE OF ST. JAMES: SCRIPTURE, TRADITION, MAGISTERIUM
BEGINS MONDAY 17 SEPTEMBER AT 6:00 PM
ST. JOHN NEUMANN CHURCH
The study will take a close look at The Epistle of St. James: Who wrote it? Why is it in the Bible? What does it tell us about Christian life and faith? The study will examine all of these questions over the course of a dozen or so sessions. A tentative schedule will be given out at the first session. There is a $10 fee to cover the cost of materials. Registration is required - please call the Parish Office to register 410-208-2956.
