St. John Neumann Catholic Church!
A Message From Fr. Pat...
To my dear St. John Neumann Parish family:
Well, Lent has begun, and we’ve got a great way for you to “accelerate” into the season…going from 0 to 60 in record time…with our annual Lenten Parish Mission!
This weekend we welcome Fr. Hugh Burns, O.P., who will preach at all weekend Masses as well at the Parish Mission this week. Fr. Hugh grew up outside of Boston (note: from this, he learned to head South during Lent to do missions…he’s a pretty smart guy!), entering the Dominican order (O.P. stands for “Order of Preachers) in 1976, and ordained a priest in 1982. He did his undergraduate work at Boston College (home of Luke Kuechly!) and his Masters work at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C. Since 1989, he has been preaching missions throughout the U.S, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America, and is a frequent commentator on National Public Radio (NPR) and well as New York area public radio.
Fr. Hugh’s theme for the week is “Get Real: Religion with Two Feet on the Ground.” The mission will remind us that the practice of our faith is not an ESCAPE from reality; rather, being Catholic gives us the tools to survive and thrive in the nitty-gritty of every-day life! The mission will begin tonight (Sunday) and end on Wednesday, with morning and evening sessions each day, all with different themes.
And if you think you’ve got a good excuse not to come…think again. Child care is available through the Faith Formation office (704-535-4197) and transportation for those who have difficulty driving is available through the Knights of Columbus (speak to Steve Coradini…704-222-0377).
More information on times and themes are available in the bulletin, on posters in the Gathering Area, and online. I’ll see you there!!!

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.
