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.
