Join us for Adult Faith Formation

All are welcome as Sunday Morning Adult Faith Enrichment also resumes on Sunday in Marian Hall after the 8 AM Family Mass celebrated by Fr. Andy Costello, C.Ss.R.  Join us at 9 AM for coffee and conversation about our Catholic faith as our gifted facilitator, Ms. Diane Beliveau, (Masters in Theology, Notre Dame) addresses the topic, “Pope Francis and his Year of Mercy: Why does it matter?”  Click here for the schedule.

Faith Formation has begun

Sunday, Sept. 27, was our first day of Faith Formation for 2015-2016 under the banner of our parish theme that happens to be a saying of Pope Francis: “Be a Witness of Mercy.” We thank all of our parents and guardians for their help in making this day run as smoothly as possible. 

Our catechists and staff are here to assist you and your children in finding new classrooms in order to get into the rhythm of a new year of learning about our Catholic Christian faith. For the safety of our children your patience is especially appreciated in the crowded hallways and parking lots.


Taizé Prayer

Taizé prayer, a beautiful, simple form of contemplative prayer, will be offered in the chapel at St. John Neumann on Wednesday, October 14 from 7:30 – 8:20 p.m.  Step out of the rush of everyday life and rest in a deeper quiet.  All are welcome.  Contact Sue Wentworth ( for more information, or search "Taizé Prayer" on this website.

A Day in the Life of a Postulant--video

She was recently profiled by the Catholic News Service. She wanted to share this glimpse into her new life with her St. Mary’s family whose prayers helped her make the transition to religious life.

Be on Time for Christ

Arriving on time for Mass is not just a question of obligation but of love and respect for Our Lord who has gathered us together to share his gifts, and who has some grace to communicate to us in each part of the Mass. It is also a sign of respect for the community with whom we worship and who deserves our presence and the contribution of our prayers in each moment.

Our Usher Ministry is happy to help you find seats in Church before the Mass begins.  Once the Liturgy has started, however, if you arrive late for Mass, we would ask that you observe the following protocol:

Please wait for an appropriate time to look for a seat, and be as quiet and discreet as possible.  A good rule of thumb to find a seat is during any time the congregation is standing (with the exception of during the Gospel reading.)

And just as we strive to be on time, please stay until after the final blessing.  Spending those last few minutes after Communion in communion with the Body and Blood of Christ can be most powerful. 

In Matthew 26:40 Jesus asks Peter “Could you not stay with me for one hour?”  Let our answer to Him be “Yes” and be present for the entire Mass.
