Getting to Know The Saint John’s Bible
Monday, Feb. 27
10 to 11:30 a.m.

The Saint John’s Bible, a bible for the 21st century, brings the Word of God to the world through pages of stunning works of art. The Bible’s imagery draws on aesthetics from both the ancient and modern world, connecting the enduring message of the Bible with modern times. 

This offering will be both informational, providing development of The Saint John’s Bible, and pastoral, providing a prayer experience with an illumination of The Saint John’s Bible. There will be ample time for discussion as well as opportunity to view some of the volumes of The Saint John’s Bible. 

This is not a study of the disciple John’s Gospel, but of the physical print of The Saint John’s Bible. La Roche acquired the Saint John’s Bible Illuminations Collection to broaden the appreciation of the Bible across campus. We invite you to be a part of that.

After the event, feel free to join us for daily Mass. Following Mass we will meet in the Cantellops Dining Hall for lunch together. Lunch for ALL members with an ID is $7 and can be paid by credit/debit card that day.

Massage Wellness Wednesday
Wednesday, March 1
10 a.m. to Noon

This class will discuss and demonstrate basic massage techniques, including simple routines for massaging your arms, hands, legs, feet and even sinus drainage. Participants also will learn massage techniques for neck releases, and have the opportunity to ask questions.

Joan Gennarini was born in Colorado and raised in Indiana. Her parents were music teachers, and her mother later became a massage therapist. Joan’s career in massage therapy started after a 15-year stint in corporate America. During that time, she moved across the country from California to Texas to Maryland, working for companies including Shell Oil, Enron North America, and Pacific Gas and Electric.

After enduring years of long hours sitting in meetings, working with various personalities of coworkers, meeting stressful deadlines, and staring at the computer screen for many hours on end, Joan decided it was time to begin her healing journey. Inspired by her mother’s skill in massage therapy, Joan broke away from the busy corporate lifestyle in September 2003 and attended massage school full-time at the Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy in Virginia Beach, Virginia. 

After graduation in 2004, she began working for a popular day spa in Newark, Delaware, and in 2006 opened her own private clientele massage business, Rekindled Spirits Therapeutic Massage.
