Catholic Women's Organization
The purpose of the Saint John Neumann Catholic Women’s Organization is to promote Christian living and service in the parish of St. John Neumann and in our greater community, foster the spiritual development of the women of the parish, and provide opportunities for friendship and community spirit through social, cultural, and educational programs and events.
“It can thus be said that women, by looking to Mary, find in her the secret of living their femininity with dignity and of achieving their own true advancement. In the light of Mary, the Church sees in the face of women the reflection of a beauty which mirrors the loftiest sentiments of which the human heart is capable: the self-offering totality of love; the strength that is capable of bearing the greatest sorrows; limitless fidelity and tireless devotion to work; the ability to combine penetrating intuition with words of support and encouragement.” (Pope St. John Paul II in his encyclical Redemptoris Mater, paragraph 46)
