St. John Neumann Parish


St. John Neumann

The Eucharist is the "source and summit" of our life as Catholic Christians. In receiving the Body and Blood of Christ, we grow in love for God and one another and become a sign of his presence in the world.

First Eucharist Preparation

Reconciliation and Eucharist Preparation acknowledge the importance and vitality of the domestic church -- the family. Sacramental preparation focuses on the family and offers at-home materials for parents and children as well as community rituals and celebrations as the children journey toward their first reception of these sacraments. Immediate preparation begins usually in May of 1st Grade with an informational meeting and a special prayer. Two years of regular attendance at a religious education program and weekly Mass are presumed by the Diocese of PIttsburgh.
