Letters From a Pastor to His People

  • Put your finger here. 23 April 2017 | By

    Dear Parishioners,

    Thomas was so close. His sainthood teetered on the edge. If our Lord had not been merciful and returned to show his wounds, Thomas might never have believed in the Resurrection and might not have remained a follower of Christ. He would not be a saint and would be grouped instead with Judas. Thomas was so close to forsakenness. He could have fallen away. But Jesus catered to Thomas' need for proof and kept him secure. “Then he said to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.’ Thomas answered and said to him, ‘My Lord and my God!’“ (Jn 20:27-28).

    Maybe you've been close to the edge, close to falling astray and away from Christ. Or maybe even you did fall and were away for a while. Thomas is your saint then.

Principal Search Announcement

Dear Families,

The principal search committee and I are very excited to share with you that we have selected and hired a new principal for Saint Juliana School, Mrs. Marjorie Marshall! Mrs. Marshall comes to us highly recommended from Saint Cyprian School, where she has served as principal for the past four years.

Mrs. Marshall is an energetic and dynamic leader who has a passion for Catholic education and the formation of all people who walk through the doors of a school. Saint Cyprian has benefitted tremendously from her leadership, and our search committee has no doubt that Saint Juliana will benefit from Mrs. Marshall as well.

Mission, Not Maintenance

No Catholic wants to see parishes and schools close. “Our aim is not to close parishes or to merge them. Our aim is to make sure that all the parishes going forward are vibrant, vital, and sustainable.” –Cardinal Blase Cupich
