Pastoral Ministry

Pastoral Ministry at St. John Neumann Parish

With the aid of a Pastoral Associate, St. John Neumann Catholic Church strives to provide a comprehensive and integrated array of pastoral ministries that promote healing and spiritual growth.  

The Pastoral Associate works with the Pastor to assess the needs of the parish and set priorities for supporting and developing pastoral and social ministries to meet the dynamic and changing needs of the parish.  In addition, the Pastoral Associate assists the Pastor by coordinating and maintain liaison with similar ministries in the local community and throughout the Dioceses of Richmond.  

A special focus of the Pastoral Associate at Saint John Neumann Parish will be on volunteer recruitment, training, and leadership development of lay pastoral ministers. 


Your Pastoral Associate is Deacon Jim Tubbs.  You can contact him at jimtubbs25@gmail.com or by calling the parish office at 598-3754 if you would like to volunteer or if you need assistance in any of the following areas:


  • Visits to those who are housebound, sick and elderly, or dying in our parish.
  • Care and support to the bereaved.
  • Care and support to those in need of practical support (food/shelter/clothing, etc.).
  • Promoting awareness of the Church’s social teaching.
  • Outreach to fallen-away Catholics and the unchurched, especially those who want to learn more about Catholicism or join us in full communion.
  • Enhancing the sense of prayer, mission and evangelization in the parish.
  • Ministries that address the needs of specific groups (e.g. Young Adults, Men/Women, divorced and separated, etc.)
