St John Neumann + Jubilee Vespers

MASS – (Fr Michael) — Today was our monthly Sunday parish visitation.  This week was 11am Mass at St John Neumann Parish in south Miami.  All 64 of us seminarians were in the front rows in our black suits in a beautiful parish (tour of their parish on their website here).  The homily highlighted the lives of both Pope John Paul II and the founding Archbishop Coleman Carroll.  We stayed after Mass to talk with parishoner and were treated to lunch.  — A great experience.  Special thanks to Fr Carmelo Romanello for concelebrating the Mass.
