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

WHAT - Wednesday Walk With Jesus
WHEN - Begins Ash Wednesday 3:00-5:00PM in the church and every following Wednesday during Lent
WHERE - The church aisles of St. John Neumann will be our labyrinth as we walk side by side with Jesus opening our hearts to Him alone.
WHY -Want to walk in with your issues and walk out with new direction?
HOW - Labyrinth walking is one of the simplest forms of focused meditation.
A labyrinth is not a game it is an important tool that can offer a spiritual awakening. It is a help in discovering what God is calling us to do with our lives and depending on Him rather than depending on ourselves, things and people outside.
**Bring your children if you’d like so that they too may walk or do their homework or watch a video in the library.
Stations of the Cross
Stations of the Cross will be held every Friday during Lent at 11:00am in the church.
