St. John Paul The Great Vocations Society of St. John Neumann
Mary Beth De Ribeaux 301-963-2724
St. John Paul the Great Vocations Society of St.John Neumann Church seeks (1) to encourage and support those discerning, preparing for, or living out their vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life through prayer and practical action and (2) to raise awareness of vocations among parishioners, especially youth and their parents, to create a “culture of vocations” here at St. John Neumann. Some of our projects have included:
- sending birthday cards to Archdiocesan seminarians,
- supporting the Run for Vocations in the fall with our annual bake sale,
- setting up the “Vocations Tree” each Lent,
- gathering women to pray after Mass for vocations, and
- organizing vocations activities for middle and high school youth.
We generally meet monthly on the second Sunday of the month for a potluck dinner with the whole family, followed by a meeting.
We welcome new members!
