Travel to Germany to see the Oberammergau Passion Play

Parishioners Tom and Maggie Carter are coordinating a trip in September 2022 to see the world-famous Passion Play of Oberammergau, which is produced in that Bavarian town every 10 years. The 2020 play was postponed until 2022 by the Bavarian government due to the pandemic. The 11-day Alpine pilgrimage to Germany, Switzerland, and Austria will take place September 12-22, 2022. In addition to the Passion Play in Oberammergau, the itinerary includes visits to Heidelberg, the Rhine Valley, Munich, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Altötting, and Marktl am Inn in Germany; Lucerne in Switzerland; and Innsbruck and Salzburg in Austria. The tour fee of $4,179 includes air fare from Washington, D.C., accommodations at first class/select hotels, admission tickets to the Passion Play, most meals, a professional tour director, and service charges. This trip continues a St. John Neumann tradition, as groups of parishioners attended the Passion Play in 2000 and 2010. Fr. Don Heet will be joining our 2022 pilgrimage. Flyers are available in the Narthex. For a detailed brochure, contact Tom at 571-643-9440 or carters2642@gmail.com. For more information on the Oberammergau Passion Play, click here.

 

Parking Lot Update

If you are attending Mass this weekend, you will notice our parking lot paving process is continuing. Starting Friday, July 16, you will be able to park in the upper parking lot, however the Lower Lot, Church side-lot, and Rectory lots will still be off-limits as the work on them continues. Please use an abundance of caution while navigating the lots, and please have patience while we are finishing the project over the next few days and weekend. Weather permitting, the parking lot will return to “normal” on Tuesday, July 20 if all goes well. A quick prayer to St. Vincent Ferrer, patron saint of pavement workers, would still be quite helpful.
