Founded in 1830, this Catholic church serves the heart of Philadelphia by providing worship services and prayer. St. John Neumann, who is remembered for his efforts to establish a parochial school system in Philadelphia and for his devoted care toward immigrants, was consecrated here in 1852. His funeral was held at this church in 1860. William Penn's great-great grandson, Thomas Penn Gaskell, is buried in the cemetery next to the church. A statue of Mary, erected in 1857 survived an 1899 fire.
