Philadelphia Museum of Art Inside Out Exhibit at NG


Neumann Goretti has been selected as a site for the 2017 Inside Out Exhibit of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Now through mid-August, community members can visit The Annunciation by Henry Ossawa Tanner on the 10th Street lawn at Neumann Goretti. The Neumann Goretti board and St. Monica’s Parish have teamed to make this exhibit a meaningful fundraiser by in which Neumann Goretti and South Philadelphia communities can purchase ribbons to tie their intentions at this Grotto. At the end of the summer, we will have a prayer service to bless the intentions, which will be re-purposed into one of the facility upgrades at Neumann Goretti, so we can forever have our community and their intentions with us.
