Each January the SJN community comes together to shelter homeless people in our facility for one week. The shelter is a part of the Fairfax County’s hypothermia prevention program. Our goal is to provide a warm, safe shelter, meals and companionship for our guests, who arrive each evening and leave in the morning.
Beginning Monday January 20, 2020, Brother Mickey will create a community mural celebrating beauty, hospitality, and love, on the walls of St. John Neumann Parish center in Reston, VA. Painting together as community becomes a uniquely prayerful experience, as the words and colors of hope and joy take shape and become visible through this group effort.
This is a celebration day for the feast day of St.Francis de Sales. More information will be announced on the University Website, or as soon as it is received, you will see an announcement here.
