Come, O Come, Emmanuel!
All-powerful God, increase our strength of will for doing good that Christ may find an eager welcome at his coming and call us to his side in the kingdom of heaven, where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit one God, forever and ever.

"Some say Advent is a time of waiting, a time of preparing for Christmas and that it is! But we know who God is calling us to be and what we are called to do…LOVE! So what are we waiting for? Let us get out there and live it today and everyday!" Join Sr. Mary Ann McCarthy as she reflects on the beginning of the Season of Advent.
Join us for the 2020 InstaAdvent Challenge! We'll be featuring Advent and Christmas traditions of the Neumann community on Instagram @neuministry! Follow along or take the challenge yourself!
The Neumann community is invited to the National Shrine of St. Rita of Cascia in Philadelphia on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. for the first ever R.A.W. The idea is relatively simple: gather for an evening of Reconciliation, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and a short Witness talk given by one of the Shrine patrons, Mrs. Evelyn Urquhart.
Retreat on your own time throughout Advent with these resources from Pray As You Go - audio guides for Advent and Christmas prayer and reflection.
