We at St. Julie Billiart rejoice with you at the birth of your child.  We look forward to your child becoming a part of our family and a member of the Body of Christ. It is through the sacrament of Baptism that the church joyfully welcomes your child into the life of our Catholic Church and into the life of our parish.
