The St. John Neumann Center is part of the Shrine complex, and a beautiful renovation was completed in fall 2015. The full facility still presents as brand new.
Much attention was devoted to creating a space that is inviting, spacious, and meets the needs of a large variety of events.
We sponsor only religious events and opportunities for large pilgrim groups to gather during their time at the Shrine. No private parties requested by individuals are accepted.
The facility is handicap-accessible.
