Monday, October 30, An Extraordinary Event at St. John’s: Meet the Daughter of a Saint

St. Gianna Molla & Family

On the evening of Monday, October 30, 2017, Saint John’s will welcome Dr. Gianna Emanuella Molla, the youngest daughter of Saint Gianna Beretta Molla.  

St. John’s is one of only two places in Minnesota to have the privilege of her presence.  

 Tentatively we are planning for Mass,  with veneration of 1st & 2nd class relics of  Saint Gianna, followed by a testimony of The Life, Faith & Sanctity of her mother, and an opportunity to meet and greet Dr. Molla. 

Light refreshments will be served.

 

Here is a link to the work Dr. Molla is accomplishing through the Ponte Nuovo Project to which she is devoting her life.  We are so privileged to have her here at St. John’s and look forward to such a special event.  Here is the link:

About Dr. Molla:

About me:
gianna-emanuelaI practiced as a geriatrician at the Geriatric Institute, “Camillo Golgi” in Abbiategrasso, Milan. In 2003, I left my profession to care for my dad Pietro who had serious health problems until he died on April 3, 2010, Holy Saturday, at the age of almost 98.
    Since my dad’s death, I work full time in service of the Saint Gianna Beretta Molla Foundation, which he founded in 1999 in Milan with my uncle Father Giuseppe, my Mom’s brother.
    The Saint Gianna Foundation is a non-profit-making Foundation. Its essential aim is to honor, to perpetuate and to spread out all around the world my Saint Mom’s memory, example, testimony and spirituality. It is a very small Foundation, which has always existed thanks to the Divine Providence’s help. I am the only person who works full time for it, with my siblings’ and my friends’ help.
