In response to the Church’s moral call for action, the SJN Care for Our Common Home ministry seeks to better understand the interconnectedness of all of God’s creation and to act in solidarity with vulnerable populations around the world and for the benefit of future generations. We strive to share Church teaching on care for creation, reduce our carbon footprint as a parish, and provide resources and encouragement so that all parishioners can live in a more sustainable manner as faithful stewards of creation.
The ministry meets at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month for prayer, education, and action planning. See the parish calendar for the room number. For more information, Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upcoming CCH Events
Annual Fair Trade Sale November 25-26, 2023
The Fair Trade Sale will be in the Brown-McCarthy Auditorium after all Masses (and throughout the day on Sunday) over Thanksgiving weekend, November 25 and 26.
Purchasing hand-made, high-quality, Fair Trade products empower those living in poverty to change their lives and their communities. The Fair Trade sale offers many great gifts that are fair for people and the planet.
St. John Neumann is a faith partner with Fair Trade Winds and receives 10% of all purchases.
A meditative, prayerful walk in nature lifts the spirit and lightens the heart.
You are invited to expand your prayer experience as you walk along the short SJN Prayer Loop behind the church, new as of this summer. If you can’t come in person, take this 3-minute virtual walk and add a blue prayer flag with your private intention.
The entrance to the prayer loop is at the far right, rear corner of the church at the end of the side parking lot (between the church and the rectory). Sample prayers are in the prayer box. We hope you enjoy finding prayerful uses of the sacred space.
Season of Creation 2020 Prayer Service
We invite you to join a virtual 17-minute outdoor prayer service celebrating the Season of Creation filmed at the outdoor amphitheater behind St. John Neumann.
As we have come to learn, it takes a special effort to be spiritually present in a virtual service and to overcome the stance of being a casual observer of a production.
Please begin by centering yourself, taking a few deep breaths and asking for the graces to participate prayerfully.
