Fall Festival Planning and Feedback
Our annual Gifts for Kids Drive provides 200 children with presents und the Christmas Tree. In a gesture of compassion, this drive collects gift cards for the families, which provides parents with the dignity and joy of shopping for their children’s Christmas gifts.
Tags will be available for pick up after all Masses the weekend of November 18-19.
Gift cards with tags are due back to SJN by December 3rd.
If you have any questions, please contact Mary Kay Crain at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
