We are delighted that you have decided to make St. John Neumann your parish home. We are a parish family of approximately 1850 households, and we are blessed to have a rich diversity of people from around our country and around our world. Our parish mission statement challenges us “to strive together to be Christ for each other and our neighbor.” With Jesus as our model, we want to make a difference in support of each other and in our world. Everyone has gifts to offer in the fulfillment of our mission. We look forward to welcoming your gifts and talents within the life of our community.
For adult newcomers to our parish, you might find it particularly helpful to join a Small Christian Community, an exercise class, or one of our social organizations such as the Knights of Columbus or Columbiettes. It is easy to come to know and become friends with other members of the parish through groups such as these. Building relationships in any way is always helpful to feel good and become involved in a parish. May you find many new friends and supporters here.
For families with children, we have an award-winning school that seeks to provide a nurturing environment “Where Children Experience Success” in every way: academically, spiritually, physically, socially. We also have a vibrant Faith Formation program for children and adults, the centerpiece of which is conducted on Wednesday evenings. We hope you will find relevant and encouraging ways to deepen and nurture your faith here.
If I or any member of our parish staff can be of assistance in helping you to acclimate to St. John Neumann, please reach out to us. We’d love to help.
