Second Sunday in Ordinary Time - January 20, 2019

All boys and girls ages 9 to 14 as of January 1st are invited to participate in the local level of competition for the 2019 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship.

The local competition will be held on Saturday, January 19th at 10:00 am in our school basketball courts here at St John Neumann.

Winners progress to district, regional and state competitions. All you have to do is show up and be ready to shoot free throws. Food, drinks and recognitions will be provided to all participants. As a reminder, all children need their parents’ permission to participate.

Last year more than 120,000 sharpshooters participated in over 3,600 local competitions. So come out Saturday and show us how well you can shoot those free throws!

Ever wonder how St John Neumann Parish always seems so alive?
The answer is you. It is because our commitment to the parish, to contributing our gifts, that so much happens day to day.

  • Each year we look back and ask, did I show my gratitude to God for all the blessings I have received?
  • Did I add to the gifts of the community so we can all enjoy a lively parish?

Join us as we all consider our stewardship Time, Talent and Treasure.

  • January 19th & 20th: Treasure, JoeTuñon & Ministry Fair
  • January 26th & 27th: Commitment, Msgr. Pablo Navarro

Please Note:

Our next outing will be on Saturday, January 19th and Sunday, January 20th. We are starting Sunday outings this month.

For Saturday:

We are in need of volunteers and hot food.
Please bring your food donations between 2:00 and 3:00 pm to the church pavilion which is located between the school and Resurrection Hall.

The group departs for the Miami Rescue Mission at 3:30 pm. Come and share in this wonderful experience. Children must be at least 12 years of age and must be accompanied by a parent.

For Sunday:

We need Hot Food and Snacks. Please have all the food delivered between 3:00 and 3:45 pm. We will depart from the Pavilion to deliver the food at 4:00 pm sharp.

Hot food is rice or pasta dishes with chicken or beef, ex. spaghetti with meat, arroz con pollo and other casserole dishes with meat. Meatballs from the frozen food section are easy to cook and can be added to other dishes. Please bring these in a disposable aluminum pan. Hamburger soup, snacks, hard boiled eggs (cooked for at least 10 minutes and not peeled), canned sodas, cases of individual water bottles, and individually wrapped sandwiches, i.e. ham & cheese, turkey & cheese (no mayo or butter), or PB & J sandwiches are always welcomed.

SJN feeds the homeless the 3rd weekend of every month.

Divina Misericordia, se reúne el Lunes 21 de Enero en el Salón 100 a las 7:45 pm.

Ven a la fuente de La Misericordia misma.

Jesús en Ti Confió!
Hope has a name… Jesus.

Hope has a name: Jesus. To put our faith in Jesus means we must put it into action through charity. Our archdiocesan programs and ministries effect change, share the love of Christ, and bring hope to people in need. In the words of Pope Benedict, “A world without God is a world without hope. A world without God is a world without a future.”

Once a year, we commit ourselves to the ongoing work of the Archdiocese of Miami by supporting the ABCD. Next week, every parish in the Archdiocese will unite to ask our Catholic community to support this year’s annual appeal by making a gift.

Please consider making a donation, whether by responding to the Archbishop’s letter, making a gift online at or turning in your pledge envelope at the Church.

Individually, we can change our own life, but together, we can change the world. United, let us be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.

Life is God’s gift to us, and what we do with it is our gift to God.

La Esperanza tiene un nombre... Jesús.

La Esperanza tiene un nombre: Jesús. Poner nuestra fe en Jesús significa que debemos ponerlo en acción a través de la caridad. Nuestros programas y ministerios de la Arquidiócesis cambian de efecto, comparten el amor de Cristo, y traen esperanza a las personas necesitadas. En palabras del Papa Benedicto, "un mundo sin Dios es un mundo sin esperanza. Un mundo sin Dios es un mundo sin futuro ".

Una vez al año, nos comprometemos con el trabajo en curso de la Arquidiócesis de Miami apoyando al ABCD. La semana que viene, cada parroquia de la Arquidiócesis se unirá para pedirle a nuestra comunidad católica que apoye laApelación Anualeste año haciendo un regalo en forma de un compromiso.

Por favor considere hacer una donación, ya sea respondiendo a la carta del arzobispo, haciendo un regalo en la RED en o entregando su sobre de compromiso en la iglesia.

Individualmente, podemos cambiar nuestra propia vida, pero juntos, podemos cambiar el mundo. Unidos, seamos Uno en la fe, uno en la esperanza y otro en la caridad.

La vida es el regalo de Dios para nosotros, y lo que hacemos con él es nuestro regalo a Dios.

Often, the very things that we do not understand about others (and about ourselves) are the greatest sources of problems and conflicts in our interpersonal relationships.

The quality of our relationships has an enormous impact on the quality of our lives, our self-esteem, and on our careers. Clearly, the better we know ourselves and the people in our lives, the more harmonious and satisfying our relationships will be.

“Essence & Personality” is a magnificent workshop that helps us get to know and understand ourselves at a deeper level. It enables us to comprehend why we think, feel and act the way we do. It helps us to understand and accept ourselves and others in our lives.
