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."
The Holy Year is “dedicated to living out in our daily lives the mercy” which God “constantly extends to all of us.” Pope Francis

“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.Read More

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.

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.Read More

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.
