As a people formed in the Roman Catholic tradition, called together by Christ, we seek to grow in faith, hope and love. We gather to be fed and healed by Word and Sacrament, which strengthens us to build Christ's Kingdom on earth and sustains us on our pilgrim way to heaven. Through our call to evangelize we invite all to join us on our journey of faith as we serve, teach, proclaim and give witness to the Gospel of Jesus. In the words of our patroness, St. Julie Billiart, "May Jesus live in all our hearts."

Vatican City, Oct 4, 2015 / 03:18 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis formally opened the synod of bishops Sunday, telling participants that the union between a man and woman is the foundation of God’s plan for the family, and a solution to the many forms of loneliness in today’s world.

Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha presented the Pope Saint Pius X Youth Award to 60 young people from parishes throughout the Fall River Diocese in a prayer service May 5 at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Fall River. Congratulations to Stephanie Garcia of St. Julie's.
The annual award, named for the pontiff who created the Fall River Diocese in 1904, and presented for the first time in 2001, recognizes teens who serve their parish community with selflessness, commitment and dedication.
Nominated for the honor by their pastor, recipients are active in a variety of ministries and programs within their parishes. Some are lectors, Eucharistic ministers, teachers in parish religious education programs; others are altar servers, leaders in youth groups and members of retreat teams.
Pope St. Pius X Youth Award recipients must have already received the Sacrament of Confirmation, be at least a sophomore in high school and not older than 19. Recipients will participate in the award prayer service, offering readings, intercessory prayers and reflections.
The Haitian Health Foundation sent the following words of gratitude for the gift of food received from our parish family this year.
Dear Frannie, (Frances Caravana)
Thank you and the very generous parish family of St. Julie's for the truck load of canned food that was collected over the Lenten holiday. This food has begun its voyage to Haiti and will be distributed to some very malnourished and deserving people.
For the past 33 years we have been providing food and other life-sustaining gifts to some wonderful, extremely impoverished people in rural Haiti.
We wish you every blessing for reaching out to these poorest brothers and sisters in Christ, who are trapped in terrible poverty, not of their own making and for which there is very little opportunity for escape.
With love and appreciation,
