Welcome Reception for New Parishioners

For new parishioners and those who would like to learn more about the parish, we invite you to join us for a Welcome Reception to meet members of our staff and parish councils and also learn about the many liturgical, faith formation and volunteer activities we have available. Please join us on Sunday, November 18, 12:30–1:30 p.m. in the auditorium for coffee and pastries. RSVP to info@saintjn.org if you plan to attend.

Many Thanks to Our Kairos Bakers!

The SJN “Blessed Bakers” baked over 600 dozen cookies for use in the recent Kairos weekends. That’s incredible! Please know how much your support means to us and the incarcerated men and women you help us serve. The Men’s Team was scheduled to go into Sussex1 State Prison, Thursday, October 25. However, that evening there was an emergency lockdown for the institution and the men’s Kairos weekend was canceled.

Your cookies went to five other institutions including the Virginia Correctional Center for Women (VCCW), Deep Meadow and Lawrenceville, having its first-ever Kairos Weekend. The Women’s Kairos Weekend was held as scheduled at VCCW, November 1–4.

Religious Christmas Cards

The Knights of Columbus Family of Man Council #7566 strives to Keep Christ in Christmas. In today’s society, this seems to be more and more difficult. Please join the Knights in their effort by supporting their annual sale of Religious Christmas Cards.

Did you miss the card sale last weekend? The Knights will be available after every Mass again this weekend, November 11–12, to help you make your selections. Don’t miss the opportunity to purchase this year’s Christmas cards that share your faith with a spiritual message. Also, you can mail your cards with beautiful religious stamps now available at the post office!
