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."

Consider making your weekly offering to St. Julie's electronically.  The parish office will be happy to provide assistance as you transition to online giving.

Helping the poor of Haiti


Once again St Julie's will collect can goods for the poor of Haiti for our Lenten Parish Sacrifice. As we know the people of Haiti are among the poorest of the poor and they were greatly pleased with our generosity of last Lent.  They are in need of many types of can goods: Tuna in oil, chicken, sardines, beef stew, spam and other protein cans. Everything has to be in cans for them to be shipped. They will be collected during Lent and then sent to Haiti by canister. Please consider picking up an extra can as you do your weekly shopping and drop it into the boxes at church. Thank you for your continuing generosity on behalf of the Haitian poor. Frances Caravana

Vatican News

The silent reform of Benedict XVI's papacy

Vatican City, Feb 11, 2016 / 02:29 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- In his new book on Benedict XVI, Vatican journalist Marco Mancini argues that while the retired pontiff became known for his shocking resignation three years ago, his real legacy began far earlier.

“Unfortunately, we remember Benedict for the great gesture of the renunciation, but if we go on remembering Benedict only for that act, it would not be doing a service to truth of the facts,” Mancini told CNA.

Vatican: No, bishops are not being told to cover up abuse

Vatican City, Feb 11, 2016 / 12:42 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Media reports are wrong to claim that the Vatican is telling new bishops that they don’t have to report sexual abuse, Holy See spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said.

A reported comment from a Vatican consultant is “not in any way – as someone has mistakenly interpreted – a new Vatican document or a new instruction or new 'guidelines' for bishops,” Fr. Lombardi said Feb. 11.

Four reasons why Pope Francis will meet with Patriarch Kirill

Vatican City, Feb 11, 2016 / 12:08 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The first, historic meeting between a Pope and a Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church does not come from nowhere. Both the Russian Orthodox Patriarchate and the Holy See have been working on such an event for decades.

In at least three cases under recent Popes, such a meeting seemed about to take place. Once under St. John Paul II and twice under Benedict XVI. But then nothing happened.

2015 Pope St. Pius X Award

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.
