Visit the tomb and Shrine of Philadelphia's "Little Bishop" and America's first male to be canonized.
Saint John Neumann's Tomb and Shrine are located in the Parish of Saint Peter the Apostle. Though Saint John never lived at this Parish, he visited here regularly during his time as bishop of Philadelphia since he was also the superior of the Redemptorist mission in America. We will visit his Shrine, tomb and Church and will have ample time for private prayer/reflection as well as a visit to the gift shop.
This tour can be booked as a solo tour or as an add on to the Historic Tour of Philadelphia. In combining this tour with the Historic Tour of Philadelphia, if time permits we can either stop for lunch or continue directly to the Shrine.
This tour can be purchased individually.
