Mass for Healing and Comfort

Wednesday, December 6
9 a.m. in the SJN Chapel

Many people are experiencing pain, even and sometimes especially, during this hopeful season of Advent. Christmas can be a particularly painful time for many people.
The special intention of the Mass for Healing and Comfort is to offer consolation for those suffering pain in mind, body, or spirt and for all who accompany those suffering.
Please join us for healing and comfort.

The Sacrament of Anointing will be offered.

SJN ACTION Committee Presenting
the Highly Acclaimed Film
“By the Grace of God” on August 25

On Friday, August 25, at 7 p.m., our SJN ACTION Committee will present the highly acclaimed 2019 film “By the Grace of God,” in the Brown-McCarthy auditorium. 

“By the Grace of God” tells the story of  how three men, abused by the same priest in their childhoods, embark on a fight for justice that will expose their personal lives and bring into question the relationships they have with family and colleagues.

Please find the official movie trailer and an RSVP for number of attendees below. Thank you!

The true story, upon which the film is based, is a scandal that happened in France with Philippe Barbarin, Cardinal of Lyon and Father Bermard Preynat.

The film is only suitable for adults (18+).

The film is presented in French with English subtitles.

Please join us for this important film. There will be an intermission and light refreshments.
