Catholic Schools introduce children to a world they would not encounter anywhere else. Faith in Jesus Christ, shaped by a community and in union with the Catholic Church around the world...they absorb a new way of thinking and living. I see it regularly at the elementary school next door where children are formed in a healthy environment. Under the dynamic leadership of principal Alicia McNamee, both the grade school and high school are excellent options for your family. During Catholic Schools Week, think about St John Neumann Regional Academy as a magnificent wa...

Jan 19: Respect for Life
Respect for Life will be the central focus of Catholic hearts this next week. We should be promoting the sanctity of human beings at every step of their existence. The unborn, elderly, disabled, poor, refugees all deserve to be treated with respect. They all independently have a dignity that comes from God, not any human authority.
But beside our prayers and words, let's be certain that we are promoting their worth with our personal actions. Are we feeding the poor, welcoming the stranger, and visiting those in prison? As witnesses of the ...

January 12 - A central goal of Vatican Council II was to remind us of the beauty and significance of Baptism. This sacrament ties and dedicates us to Jesus. But because of that it also gives us roles and responsibilities to build the Kingdom of God. When you were blessed with Chrism during your Baptism you were designated a priest, prophet and king. So, you are a critical part of the spreading the good news and expanding the Church. Make this year a time when you volunteer to strengthen our two parishes. We have much we could do with you! It’s not my job alone, w...
You can donate to the parish and reduce your taxes with the Charitable IRA Rollover. The charitable IRA rollover refers to the option that individuals 70 and a half and older have to contribute up to $100,000 from their IRAs (as part of their minimum contribution) directly to a qualifying charity without first having to recognize the distribution as income. You may contact the parish office for further information. **For tax-related or financial questions, it is best to consult a professional in those fields. Please, think seriously about how you could boost your parish!

Archbishop Fulton Sheen said … “Love tends to become like the one loved; in fact, it even wishes to become one with the one loved. God loved unworthy man. He willed to become one with him, and that was the Incarnation.” The Divine Romance, 70. Now it is our role to become like God by imitating what we have seen and heard about Jesus. It’s not about prayer, charity, contributions…it’s becoming the one that is loved.
