PHOTOS & VIDEO: Archbishop Chaput celebrates Neumann Feast Day in Philadelphia
The Redemptorists at St. Peter the Apostle Church/Shrine of St. John Neumann were honored to welcome Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput as the celebrant of the 12:15 p.m. Mass on Neumann's feast day, January 5. In recent years, the archbishops of Philadelphia have made it a custom to celebrate Mass at the Shrine on that day in honor of Neumann's status as the fourth bishop of that diocese.
Archbishop Chaput has visited the Shrine several times, including on the day of his appointment to Philadelphia and during a visit from the archbishop of Prague, Czech Republic.

Who are the Redemptorists?
Two thousand years ago Jesus said, “He sent me to preach the Good News to the poor.” Since 1732 the Redemptorists have followed in His footsteps, preaching the Word and serving the poor and most abandoned. Our congregation of missionary priests and brothers was founded by St. Alphonsus Liguori. Like the first Apostles, our mission—and our joy—is bringing the message of salvation to all people. As Redemptorists, we have a special devotion to crib, cross, Mary, and the Eucharist. To learn more, explore our website and connect with us on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter.
