Family Life

Family Life Committee

Our parish community is a family composed of many families. This committee promotes activities that will strengthen both the parish and the domestic Church, the home. Parenting workshops, Bereavement ministry, seminars on family relationships or challenges, Ministry Fair and Appreciation activities are just a few of the activities overseen by this committee.

Bereavement Ministry

The purpose of this ministry is to provide comfort and hope to the bereaved family in times of grief. The initial contact is made through the office. This ministry assists the Pastor in helping the family in the planning of the funeral such as the Vigil Service the night before the burial, readings to be read at the services, the luncheon after the Mass, etc.

Catholic Daughters of the Americas

Formed in 1903, the Catholic Daughters of the Americas is one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas. Our local court was instituted at St. John Neumann in 2007 and took the name "Daughters of Our Lady of Fatima, Court 2596". We donate to charities, administer scholarship programs and strive "to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness."

The CDA motto is "Unity and Charity." As Catholic Daughters, we enjoy each other's company at meetings and work hard for our parish and community. Deeply spiritual, together we share faith, love of God and spread the Good News wherever we are led. For more information on this organization, please contact the parish office.

Founded in New Haven, Connecticut 125 years ago by Blessed Father Michael McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is under way at the Vatican, the Knights of Columbus is dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. It is the world's largest lay Catholic organization with more than 1.7 million members in 14,000 councils in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Caribbean, and Poland.

Our local council gives financial support to St. John Neumann parish as well as to local and state charities. We have also actively participated in parish ministries and supported all parish organizations and activities. We have volunteered help and financial aid to Habitat for Humanity as well as to local Catholic schools.

We are always looking for good Catholic men, 18 years and older, to join our organization. We are proud to represent the Knights of Columbus Order at St. John Neumann Catholic Church. Our council meets on the fourth Monday of each month in the Scott Room of the Family Center at 7:30pm.
