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, KHS

Pastor

INCLEMENT WEATHER and MASS

The BEST way to be informed about weather related cancellations of Masses or other parish events is to sign up for St. John Neumann's "Remind.com" service.  This allows the Pastor to send out important notifications by email or text to everyone who participates.  In the event of inclement weather, you can also call the main parish number (410-208-2956) and select Option 3 to find out if Mass has been cancelled.  A recorded message will alert you to that cancellation.  In addition, you can check the Parish website (www.stjohnneumannrcc.com).
