Dia de los Muertos
ALL SAINTS & ALL SOULS: CELEBRATING DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS
If you are joining St. John Neumann, or thinking about joining, consider investing some of your time in one or more of the ministries we offer. Volunteering is a great way to meet other parishioners, to learn more about our community, and to enjoy the rewards gained from sharing your gifts and talents. We are looking forward to seeing you at Mass and getting to know you better.
"Walk to Bethlehem"
Join us in our Virtual "Walk to Bethlehem"
We began our journey, Monday, September 23, 2019 and it will end on November 17, 2019.
EVERYONE, no matter your age, can join in!
In our virtual Walk to Bethlehem, we ask that everyone turn in how many "miles" they exercise each week. We then total up the "miles" and that is how far we "walk" that week. During our walk we visit Catholic holy sites, and other sites on our way to Bethlehem. If you have pictures of Catholic Holy sites that we may stop at during our journey, feel free to email them, and if we are able to stop and "see" them we will. Please send in your pictures now!
Our wonderful tour director will be leading us on our journey. We will walk from St. John Neumann Church to the Charlotte Airport. We will then fly to Dusseldorf, Germany. We will then proceed through western Germany, to Northern Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Turkey, Lebanon and finish our journey in Bethlehem, Israel.
What counts as "miles"?
A mile equals 20 minutes of moderate activity, including walking, swimming, housework, or even mowing the lawn. Record your mileage each week and report it to the tour director at [email protected], or drop a report in the box located in Gillin Hall.
Children and Youth can participate, so all of our children can contribute miles from sports, or even fast moving playing. We encourage you to check the website or the posters in Gillin Hall to see our progress.

Welcome Returning Catholics
First, we welcome you. We recognize you are considering a significant step on your spiritual journey. Some see this as a journey back to their spiritual home; others are looking for reconciliation with God and the Church. Whatever your reason for being away, we have missed you and celebrate your desire to take another look. See more information for returning Catholics.
