The Search - Video Program on

The Search Trailer

The Search is an innovative video series or book that tackles the key questions of every human heart. In seven beautifully filmed episodes, Chris Stefanick and experts from multiple fields of science, medicine, psychology, art, and religion examine our place in the larger story of existence.

Whether you’re a practiced inquirer or a jaded skeptic, The Search will speak to you. You may be reassured by some parts, and challenged by others. Either way, you’ll find a lot here to think about.

Christmas Message from Fr. Steve 

Merry Christmas! What a joy to gather again to celebrate Christ’s birth. At HNOJ Jesus Christ is the center of all that we do. From Faith Formation and School to Sunday Mass and community outreach, HNOJ seeks to see the face, know the heart, and be the hands of Jesus.

2020 has been a challenging year and perhaps has surfaced some big questions about how we live, happiness, and purpose.

We are gifting your family a copy of The Search, a book and video series, that we think asks and answers some of these big questions. We hope that you at least give this book a try, read just the first chapter or watch the first episode of the video series on

Know that HNOJ is your home and you are always welcome. God bless you on this the celebration of the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!
Fr. Steve Ulrick
