Welcome

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."

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.

Vatican City, May 1, 2016 / 07:36 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis on Sunday decried the resurgence of violence in Syria in recent days, especially in Aleppo, and renewed the call to bring about peace through dialogue.

“I receive with deep sorrow the tragic news coming from Syria, about the spiral of violence that continues to aggravate the already desperate humanitarian situation of the country,” the pontiff said May 1 after reciting the Regina Caeli address in St. Peter's Square.

Blood-red Trevi fountain a wake-up call on Christian persecution

Vatican City, Apr 30, 2016 / 02:30 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Illuminated by the red light that spilled across Rome’s Trevi fountain, voices from persecuted Christian communities across the world shared the stories of friends and loved ones killed for the faith, and urged the world to take greater action in putting the violence to an end.

“Let us remember, tonight, the blood of the Christian martyrs, spilled by the violence of men and the sin of the world,” Cardinal Mauro Piacenza said April 29.

Let yourselves be reconciled with God, Pope Francis says

Vatican City, Apr 30, 2016 / 04:35 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Reconciliation is an essential aspect of God’s mercy, Pope Francis said Saturday, explaining that when we distance ourselves from the Lord through sin, it takes much more than our own effort to get back to him.

Referencing St. Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians, Pope Francis urged all members of the Church April 30 to “let yourselves be reconciled with God.”
