Czech church, called oldest in New World, to host next Mass Mob


Sue Redfearn has known St. John Nepomuk most of her life. Her parents' parents were from the Old World, and Redfearn carried on the family's Czech heritage as she attended school and received the sacraments at the parish.

The annual crowning of the Infant Jesus of Prague statue, the Goulash Festival, the 40-hour and First Friday devotions — all of them are fond memories for Redfearn, who has served as business manager for 27 years.

"I remember we used to do plays in the (church) hall, at Christmas and Mother's Day," she said. "Once I got stage fright and could not stop laughing."
