We received great news here at the Shrine this morning. We have long been popularly called the "National" Shrine of St. John Neumann, but we were uncertain of our official claim to that "National" title. When we searched our files we found we had no records of such designation for our shrine by the USCCB Secretariat for Divine Worship, the body responsible for designation of national shrines in the US. Well, that changed this morning. We just received word that the Secretariat's Committee on Shrines voted yesterday to approve our status. We await a formal letter, but as of today we know we are now officially as well as popularly "The National Shrine of St. John Neumann!"
