Registration Guidelines and Requirements
We are excited to join you in the faith formation process for your child(ren)! Please read the information listed below before continuing with the enrollment process.
- Families not registered at St. John Neumann for at least 6 months prior to the beginning of Fall Semester will be charged an additional $25 fee. If you are not receiving offertory envelopes, The Georgia Bulletin, and seasonal mailings from St. John Neumann, you may not be registered in the parish.
- Only parents or court-approved guardians may enroll their child(ren). Court-approved guardians must provide documentation to the Religious Education office when enrolling children in our programs.
- Weekly Sunday Mass attendance is required for all Catholics. We are not able to admit to First Holy Communion or Confirmation preparation to those who do not attend Mass every Sunday, and participate regularly in faith formation.
Pentecost marks the official birth of the Church. The result of the Reception of the Holy Spirit was immediate. The Apostles’ fear gave way to courage. Filled with the Spirit, they went out to proclaim the Risen Lord, even if that meant undergoing persecution and death. St. Stephen the Martyr is the first example of such courage. They were given the gift of language, which enabled them to go and proclaim Christ in different parts of the world. “As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”(Jn. 20:21) We too have received this mandate from the Lord through our Baptism and Confirmation. St. Paul says, “For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.”(1st Cor.12:13)
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.
