Sunday Oct 1, 2017 from 2 pm – 4 pm - THE SAINT JOHN’S BIBLE “THE BOOK OF WISDOM” presented by the Catholic Women’s League. The Saint John’s Bible is divided into seven volumes. The Book of Wisdom volume includes Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, Proverbs, Job, Wisdom, and Sirach) and is two feet tall by three feet wide when open!
In 1998, Saint John's Abbey and University commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a hand-written, hand-illuminated Bible. We invite you to explore this work of art that unites an ancient Benedictine tradition with the technology and vision of today, illuminating the Word of God for a new millennium.

The CWL Special Lenten project ( “Giving” for Lent instead of "Giving up something") was a overwhelming success! Many thanks to all the parishioners who donated so many much needed items for Monica Place for Pregnant and Parenting Youth.
