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."

With gratitude from Haiti
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.
