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

Thank you for your support and good luck!

 

Consider automating your donations with our electronc giving program.  Electronic giving is convenient for you and provides much needed consistency for our parish.  There is no cost to you to participate.  And if you travel or other circumstances prevent you from attending mass, this program will allow your monthly offerings to continue uninterrupted.  Many of our families have taken advantage of this easy-to-use approach to contributing to our parish ministries.  If you are interested, please complete an Electronic Giving Form or contact Deacon Dave Kolesky in our parish office at 410-208-2956.  The form can be found on the parish website, in the Online Giving tab, in the gathering space, and at the parish office.  All online giving information is secure and kept totally confidential.

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).

FAITH ENVIRONMENT/SAFE ENVIRONMENT

Did you know that in 2003 in response to the United States Conference of Bishops' Charter for the Protection of Children, the Diocese developed a safe environment program entitled For the Sake of God's Children?  The Bishop, all priests, deacons, seminarians, religious brothers and sisters, and all lay employees and volunteers participate in the program to assure that a comprehensive, safe environment exists in our parishes, schools and institutions.  For more information, go to www.cdow.org and click on For the Sake of God's Children.
