|Our work for justice is a response in loving service to the physical and spiritual needs of our local, regional and global communities. At St. John Neumann, we share a sense of the importance of community. We build upon a community that welcomes and reaches out to all, where members are known for their care for one another, where social bonds are encouraged and nourished.
