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, Jul 31, 2015 / 02:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In a tiny victory for Vatican-Chinese rapprochement, China's government now recognizes seminary studies and allows seminarians to continue their education in a state university should they leave.
The Bachelor of Arts diploma young men receive in the seminary is now recognized as being a state title by the Chinese government. With the recognition it is now possible for seminarians who decide to quit their priestly formation to continue their education in a state university.Read More

Updated July 31 at 10:04 am MT: A spokesperson for the Walk Free Foundation has responded to this article, telling CNA: "We welcome any religious initiative dedicated to ending modern slavery. While Bishop Sanchez has stepped down from the Board, the Global Freedom Network (GFN) and its initiatives remain in place. At absolutely no point in time was this a business initiative and Walk Free Foundation provided the seed funding to the GFN, which in its first year was over 1million Euros."Read More

Vatican City, Jul 30, 2015 / 01:02 am (CNA).- A fixed term mandate for Vatican officials serving in the Roman Curia was among recent proposals for the Vatican's ongoing reform process, and will likely be discussed at the Sept. 14-16 meeting of the Council of Cardinals.
It's still unclear whether the fixed term mandate refers to all Vatican officials – that is, those who hold an office of the Roman Curia – or if it would just apply to the clergy.Read More

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,
