Haiti Kidz Ministry
  • Our mission is to provide the children of Haiti with an opportunity to lead a healthy life through medical services, training and awareness. Our goal is have a team of 3-4 medical staff travel quarterly to Hinche to provide ongoing care to the people of the surrounding towns. This is a self-funded ministry so donations are greatly appreciated. Checks should be written to St. John Neumann with Haiti Kidz in the memo section 
Ecuador Day Care
  • St. John Neumann provides assistance to the Fundacion Cristo de Miraville Day Care Center in Quito, Ecuador. This daycare center provides a Christian education for the children of the working poor around the Quito area. Rev. Manuel Espinosa oversees the Day Care and its children. St. John Neumann, through donations and sponsorships of the children, provides monetary support for the Day Care. Fr. Espinosa visits us each year in the summer and is in contact with newsletters during the rest of the year. Donation checks should be made out to St. John Neumann with Ecuador in the memo section.
Powhatan Food Pantry
  • The Powhatan Food Pantry provides food for the Hungry, Elderly and Needy of Powhatan County. The Powhatan Food Pantry is a member of the Central Virginia Food Bank and the Coalition of Powhatan Churches.
Human Concerns Fund
  • This fund was set up so that parishioners of St. John Neumann could anonymously help other parishioners in need. Donations are held in the fund until such time as they are needed. This is a discretionary fund for the Pastor to minister to those who approach him to discuss their individual or family needs.
Eucharistic Ministry to the Homebound & Hospitalized
  • ·         Parishioners in the St. John Neumann community who are temporarily or permanently unable to attend mass are still in full communion with us.  We have extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion for the sick available to bring Communion to you.  

    ·         This ministry also takes the Eucharist to Catholic patients at Johnston Willis Hospital during April, August and December. It is a very rewarding ministry and one that is always looking for volunteers

    ·         If you or anyone in your household is homebound or hospitalized and unable to attend mass, or if you are interested in volunteering for one of these ministries, click here for more information.  (link to http://www.sjnpowhatan.org/home/pastoral-associate/homebound-hospital-ministry)
