St. John Neumann Center

1039 North Lawrence St.
Philadelphia, PA 19123

This image shows the entire 50- by 120-foot room, with stage, podium, and microphones. The event was a catered sit-down dinner and diocesan award ceremony for 384 guests. Caterer, video equipment, videographers, tablecloths, and dishes were all outsourced for the affair.

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.
