Welcome Returning Catholics

First, we welcome you. We recognize you are considering a significant step on your spiritual journey.

Child and Youth Protection

Dear Brothers in Christ,

The one-year anniversary of the Apostolic Letter Vos estis lux mundi, issued motu proprio by our Holy Father Pope Francis, will be on June 1. To embrace the spirit of the Apostolic Letter, we have created an insert that you may include in your bulletins and share this content on your social media platforms.

This important information will explain the systems we have in place to report abuse. It will also let the general public know that we will listen when they talk, and we will act accordingly. All dioceses must create "public, stable and easily accessible systems" to encourage those wounded by Catholic Church personnel, including bishops, to report the abuse. Your assistance in sharing this information is greatly appreciated.

For more information, please visit our Office of Child and Youth Protection website at charlestondiocese.org/child-and-youth-protection.

New Members

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.

Diocesan Resources

The U.S. Census determines the amount of money our state receives for roads, education, and vital services. It informs emergency preparedness and public safety plans, and guides how federal funding is distributed to communities for local needs.

Data collected from the census also determines the state's representation in Congress for the next decade and influences the way legislative lines are drawn at the federal and state levels.

The allocations South Carolina receives are directly tied to population numbers. Without an accurate count, we lose vital aid and services.

Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone encouraging people to fill out the census. Visit charlestondiocese.org/2020-census for more information.

Hispanic Community Needs

The Hispanic Community is in need of  bed linens for a queen, full and two single beds, pillows, and men’s shoes, sizes 7, 7 1/2 and 8 1/2.  They also need living room furniture, microwave and clothing for school age children.  If you have a donation, please call Hector Morales at (803) 787-3010 and leave your number.  Thank you!
