New to Parish

St. John Neumann welcomes you into our community. We recognize each person is on their own journey of faith. We seek to meet you where you are while providing opportunities for growth through evangelization and spirit -filled relationships.

We are growing as a parish because our members have found a family of faith in our community through participation in the Sacraments, studying God’s word, joining discipleship groups, prayer and fasting. We offer many opportunities to minister to our neighbors and we encourage using the gifts and blessings God has given.

We invite you to complete a Family Registration Form and return it to the parish office.  This allows us to reach out personally and answer your questions or serve your needs.

Maybe you are not ready to register – we are still glad you are here! Our website and weekly bulleting offer many ideas to get involved. Learn more about:

As new families join our parish, it is important for them to get involved right away, both in supporting our mission and participating in the life of our community.  At this time, I ask for your pledge to our parish’s Annual Offertory and Activities, Events & Volunteer Opportunities program.  This program has two components:  a pledge of your financial resources to our parish offertory and a pledge of your time and talent to the parish community as a new member of our family.  The parish needs faithful givers like you to support our daily faith community operations.  Your regular giving through the offertory will continue to fund all of our ministries and outreaches, staff salaries & benefits, faith formation opportunities, monthly utilities, religious education programs, normal buildings & grounds maintenance, and other ministry and administrative costs. In short, it is your financial commitment that helps us operate our parish on a daily basis since over 95% of our total annual budget comes from the offertory.  I ask you to consider making a pledge using our Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).  Currently, 33% of our contributors use EFT, a safe and convenient alternative to envelopes and cash.  EFT makes it easier for parishioners to support our parish on a regular basis, even when they can’t make it to St. John Neumann Church for the weekend Mass.  EFT assures the parish of a more consistent offertory income.  This helps us to better forecast, implement, track and adhere to our budget.  Please consider trying EFT for one year, on a trial basis.  If you don’t like it, you can cancel at any time and go back to your regular method of giving.

May God bless your faith journey.  If there is anything we can do to support that journey – please don’t hesitate to ask!

We believe we are a family here. Join us!

Welcome Home to Saint John Neumann.

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. David Sizemore, Pastor
