Fr John-Julian OJN

The Friends of Julian of Norwich and the community around St Julian’s have been saddened to hear of the death of Fr John-Julian ObJN in Wisconsin on Thursday 15 July.


Fr John-Julian (John Swanson) founded the Order of Julian of Norwich, a contemplative Religious Order in the Episcopal Church of the USA, in 1985.  There have been warm links between the Order and the Julian Shrine in Norwich, and some of our Friends and Companions are also Oblates or Associates of OJN.

We give thanks for the life and ministry of this faithful priest, Religious, spiritual guide, writer and teacher.

A Requiem Mass for the repose of his soul will be celebrated in St Julian’s Church at 5pm on Friday 23 July.  All are welcome to attend.
