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."

Nairobi, Kenya, Nov 26, 2015 / 08:08 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis tossed his prepared remarks aside for a meeting with Kenyan priests, religious and seminarians, telling them that if anything disgusts God, it’s the attitude of indifference.

He also gave some practical advice, such as keeping the Lord at the center of their lives through prayer and the sacraments, and stressed that the Church is not a business, but rather a mystery intended to serve others.

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.
