History of St. John Neumann

St. John Neumann was originally from Bohemia and immigrated to the United States in 1836.  He is currently the only Bishop and only male U.S. Citizen to be canonized, as opposed to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who is female.  St. John Neumann founded the Catholic school system in America and has many schools named after him.1
