Hill Country

The Path to Power, the first volume in Robert A. Caro's series, The Years of Lyndon Johnson, spends a fair amount of time describing the land where LBJ was raised, the Texas Hill Country. This fascinating land stands at the crossroads of West, Central, and South Texas. It was once a land of opportunity, but overgrazing in the 19th Century, combined with the constant threat of Native American attack, made it a somewhat desolate place. Residents of the Texas Hill Country were, to say the least, tough. The women were especially strong. Caro describes the brutal nature of household chores: lugging water for miles; hauling wood and then chopping it for the stove, which was extremely difficult to light; ironing shirts with twenty pound iron wedges, literally, without handles; and so on. So arduous was their lifestyle, Texas Hill Country women were noted for their bent-over posture. These figures were heroic, if not saintly.

Who is your Divine Person?

Dear Parishioners,

One of my favorite hymns is "Praise the Holy Trinity." Here are the lyrics:

O God Almighty Father,
Creator of all things,
The Heavens stand in wonder,
While earth Thy glory sings.

Refrain: O most Holy Trinity,
Undivided Unity;
Holy God, Mighty God,
God Immortal, be adored.

O Jesus, Word Incarnate,
Redeemer most adored,
All Glory, praise and honor,
Be Thine, our Sov'reign Lord. R.

O God, the Holy Spirit,
Who lives within our souls,
Send forth Thy light and lead us
To our eternal goal. R.

Teen Ministry

Saint Juliana Parish hosts a monthly gathering for teens and invites all current high school students to attend and join our Teen Ministry.

On the second Sunday of every month, we meet in church for 5pm Mass then head over to the Ahearn Activity Center for food (usually pizza or something equally good) and open gym immediately afterwards.

Bring your friends and spread the word! Students from all high schools are welcome and there's no cost. This is a great chance to reconnect with grammar school friends you haven't seen in a while, and make new friends!
