St. John Neumann (1811-1860) was Bohemian by birth but came to America to become a priest. He served a vast territory in western New York State. Later, he was transferred to Baltimore and, in 1852, was made bishop of Philadelphia. He died there, exhausted by his rigorous work. He was very instrumental in starting the Catholic School System, which, for over 100 years, turned out well-educated, truly Catholic graduates. Philadelphia boasts the Shrine of St. John Neumann, which is under the care of his order ... the Redemptorists. Many miracles have been attributed to his intercession ... especially involving the cure or recovery of children.
