Welcome to St. John Neumann
Catholic Church

A Message From Fr. Pat...

To my dear St. John Neumann Parish family:

Well, I guess I must admit it.  Summer is over (sniff, sniff)!  School is back in session, Labor Day is behind us, and Faith Formation classes started last Sunday.  And as much as I hate to see summer end, I love the excitement of a new faith formation year beginning.  We are again at record enrollment, at well over 600 students, and I am grateful to all who contribute to our programs in any way.

We continue to expand our youth programs to meet the needs of our growing parish.  On Sunday mornings, in addition to our regular faith formation classes for K through 5th grade, we have two additional opportunities I want you to know about:

  1.  Children’s Liturgy of the Word—offered at our 9:30 and 11:00 Masses, this is for children aged 5 or above to hear the readings proclaimed and explained at a child’s level.  Most of you are familiar with this as we have been doing it for a number of years.  No registration is required!  Just send your children up when the priest invites them after the Opening Prayer.  They will go to a separate space with the facilitator during the Liturgy of the Word, leaving us old folks to listen and meditate on the Word ourselves!
     
  2. SonShine Pre-School—offered also at the 9:30 and 11:00 Masses, this is for 3 and 4 year old children.  It is a pre-school faith formation program.  Parents can drop their children off before Mass and pick them up afterward.  This is a great opportunity for children who are not yet “ready” for Mass to learn about their faith while Mom and Dad worship in the Church.  Registration is required, and you can sign up or find out more information by stopping by or calling the Faith Formation office (either after Mass on Sunday, or during office hours Monday thru Thursday).  The number is 704-535-4197.

Also, a reminder that the 10th annual Diocese of Charlotte Eucharistic Congress is this coming Friday and Saturday, September 19-20 at the Charlotte Convention Center.  Please join fellow parishoners from St. John Neumann in the Eucharistic Procession and Holy Hour, which begins at 9:00 a.m. in front of St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Uptown Charlotte.  I will be there!  Look for the St. John Neumann banner and process with us!  This is a prayerful and inspiring time each year, and a great way to celebrate the gift of the Eucharist and the beauty of our wonderful Diocese.

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.
