Welcome to St. John Neumann
Catholic Church

A Message From Fr. Pat...

With the “extra” daylight hours of summer, I love taking a little walk in the early morning or evening when the sun isn’t so hot.  My path usually takes me out the back of the church property, into the neighborhood behind the athletic field, and then up one of the streets out onto Idlewild Road and back to the church.  Most of the walk is very peaceful, but, obviously, that last stretch on Idlewild Road has lots of traffic, street noise, and, for now at least, the dirt and obstacles that come with road construction.

As I come from the sidewalk onto church property, I always notice the change that occurs.  The chaos of the road turns into tranquility.  The dirt and noise fade into the background; the church landscaping is so beautiful!  And that is no accident!  There is a group of faithful volunteers who work together to till and plant and feed and water the various gardens and flower beds to make our campus almost like an “oasis in the desert.”  I hope you feel the same sense of peace when you “arrive home” at St. John Neumann.

All of us can do something to help our parish to be a “holy ground” where parishoners and visitors can encounter the Lord in His Mystical Body, the Church.  Some tend the gardens, others greet at the door or strike up a conversation with a familiar, or unfamiliar, face, before or after Mass.

Thank you for all you do to make our parish a foretaste of the Father’s house.  Let’s keep looking for ways to make it even better!

Happy Sunday!

-Fr. Pat

A hearing loop sends clear, pure sound to your CI or hearing aid without background noise Even with the most up-to-date technology, CIs and hearing aids cannot completely separate important sounds from background noises; nor do they pick up all sounds from a distance such as those in a performance hall, a church or a home TV viewed from across the room. In such listening settings, induction hearing loops can offer a solution. A hearing loop wirelessly transmits sound to antennae, called a telecoil, inside your CI or hearing aid. A hearing loop can be connected to public address system, a home TV or any other audio source. SJN offers a T-coil loop. To use the T-coil system, print or view the instructions sheet.
