Members of the Minnesota Area gathered together to celebrate the Feast of St. John the Baptist on Thursday, June 23rd at Holy Family Church in St. Louis Park. Fr. Joseph Johnson, ChM was the celebrant of the Mass. After Mass members gathered for a dinner in the church hall.
During dinner, a new piece of art was unveiled that presents the early hospital as the foundation of our Order. Commissioned with the private donations of some of our members, the artist Christopher Santer of Pacem Studio drew upon images from the ruins of the original hospital (excavated in 2013) and historical research to capture Blessed Gerard amongst his charges. This painting will be displayed at events attended by area members.
