21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
Catholic Christianity is for serious believers, as there is no place for any sort of compromise on divine teachings or values. This is the message of this Sunday’s Scripture readings. In the 1st Reading, Joshua, the new leader after Moses, tells the people of Israel, “If it does not please you to serve the Lord, decide today whom you will serve. As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” In the Gospel, noticing many people leaving him because of his “Bread of Life” teaching, Jesus asks his disciples, “Do you also want to go away?”
SJN is accepting orders for the 2nd batch of Memorial Brick Pavers. The forms are available at the Narthex. The cut-off date is September 30, 2015.

Calling all crafters!
We, the members of St. John Neumann Parish, are a welcoming community of diverse Christians who are called to:
Proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ in word and deed,
Seek a continual renewal of mind and heart as disciples of the Lord Jesus,
Proactively address the needs of our Parish and extra-Parish communities, particularly through the Corporal Works of Mercy,
Share our time, talents, and treasure, as good stewards of the gifts given, and
Celebrate our faith through liturgical prayer and the sacraments of our Roman Catholic Church.
