A Note From The Music Director

Hello, SJ Parishioners! 

I cannot believe that it has been about three months since we worshiped together in the same place at the same time.  That said, I am very much looking forward to praying with you very soon with the re-opening of St. Juliana!

In order to help keep everyone healthy during these times, some practices regarding music will be changing.  These changes are temporary and may be updated or modified unexpectedly depending on Archdiocesan, government, and medical guidelines. 

First, you will see that there are no hymnals in the bookshelves nor the pews.  For the time being, IF USED, any worship aid or bulletin must be single-use, and should be taken with you as you leave the church.

A Letter to St. Juliana Parish

My dear friends of St. Juliana,

I want to first of all say, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for the years we have come to know each other. I could not have asked for a better community to learn from and share in the joy that is the vocation to serve you in Our Lord’s Name as His priest-to-be.

Mass Reopening

 

June 5, 2020

Dear Parishioners,

I'm happy to announce the Archdiocese has granted our parish permission to enter into Phase 2 of Reopening, which allows for the celebration of Mass!

To allow time for proper preparation and compliance, our first Mass will be Saturday, June 13th at 5pm in the main church.  Mass the next day will be Sunday, June 14th at 9:30am.  There will be daily Mass offered at 8:30am Monday through Friday in the main church.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available from 10:30 am until 11:30 am on Sundays.

Parishes across the Archdiocese are opening at various intervals based on their ability to gather supplies and volunteers, so we are blessed to be somewhat ahead of the curve on the reopening schedule.  Our plan is to add a second Sunday Mass, in addition to the Saturday evening Vigil Mass, on July 12.  Please be sure to check online for updates.

Also be sure to check online for the proper regulations for attending Mass (e.g. wearing a face mask, how to receive Communion, etc.).  Because the number of Mass attendees is limited to 20% of the church's seating capacity, the Archdiocese is requiring every parish to have a reservation system.  The first weekend, however, each individual Mass will be limited to only 50 attendees, per directive of the Archdiocese.  Starting June 20, we will be able to operate at 20% of our capacity.  Thank God we have a big church!

If you would like to attend Mass, therefore, please go on our website or click here to reserve your place.  Or, you may call the parish office (773-631-4127) to secure a reservation.  You may leave a message if you call after hours.

The Archbishop is still granting a dispensation to all Catholics from Sunday Mass.  As has been the case for the last several months, there is no obligation presently to attend Mass, especially if you are not able to do so.  The parish will continue to post Sunday Virtual Masses online for your spiritual benefit.

If you are willing to help assist at Mass (checking people in beforehand, escorting worshipers to marked pews, sanitizing hands, cleaning pews after Mass, and so on), please email the parish office (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Thank you for your willingness to serve.

These are troubling times in our city and world, so I hope this news provides a little consolation.  More importantly, I hope the opening of the church and the celebration of Mass will allow us more time for prayer and sanctification.  Only the Lord can grant us the peace, health, and holiness we need.  May we open our hearts to him and his grace.  

Thank you for your support and your dedication.  I remain,

Yours in Christ,
Fr. James Wallace

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help

This is where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in the United States. It is a humble, quiet place of refuge, noble in simplicity, located at the core of a  tri-county region in the heart of agricultural country in Northeast Wisconsin. In America, The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help at Champion covers the peace-filled holy ground deemed ‘worthy of belief’ by authority of the Catholic Church, that Mary, the mother of Jesus, appeared. Identifying herself as ‘The Queen of Heaven who prays for the conversion of sinners,’ Mary appeared in October 1859 to a Belgian immigrant woman, Adele Brise, on the grounds of Champion Shrine, when the town was known as Robinsonville.

In December 2010, after a period of prayerful discernment during which he reviewed years of research and investigation by expert Mariologists, The Most Rev. David L. Ricken, Bishop of Green Bay, determined it to be ‘worthy of belief’ that the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Adele Brise.

On August 15, 2016,  The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops declared Champion a ‘National Shrine,’ by formal decree, distinguishing ‘The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help’ as the first and only Catholic Shrine in America with a Church-approved Marian Apparition Site. 

A Note From The Pastor of St Juliana

A Note From Father James Week Four - April 5, 2020

Dear Parishioners,

Well, I think it’s safe to say this will be the most unique Holy Week and Easter of our lives. We can do this!

In case you missed it, please check out our Palm Sunday virtual Mass online, either on our website or on Facebook

Here are the times the other Virtual Holy Week Liturgies will be released:

Holy Thursday
Mass of the Lord’s Supper 4pm

Good Friday
Children Stations of the Cross 10am
Passion of the Lord Service Noon

Holy Saturday
Easter Basket Blessing 11am

Easter Sunday
Easter Mass 5am

Just a reminder, these are not “live,” so you can watch them whenever you want, and not necessarily at the time they are released.

Additionally, I continue to release my daily podcast with the Mass readings and reflection, called “The Daily,” and Deacon Hank Lyon and I have begun a casual podcast called “Chi-Bro.” 

Thank you to all who continue to volunteer to those in need.  We haven’t had many folks reach out who need help, so, please, if you know of anyone who needs assistance, let me know.  Even if it is someone who just needs to talk on the phone, we can arrange for that as well.

Also, please continue to send me your prayer requests, and we will stay united to one another through the Masses we offer privately.

I also want to express my thanks to those who continue their Sunday offering.  God love you. Our collections are still down from our average Sunday intake, but we have increased the number of people who are donating online on GiveCentral. Another donating feature you can use is text-to-give.  Please text Sunday or Easter to 773-358-2471.  This can help us with our Easter collection, which is a significant part of our operating budget.  

Saint Juliana School goes on Easter Break this upcoming Friday.  Sadly, we’ve had to postpone the Sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation.  But, for some good news: we have hired our new principal for the upcoming school year and beyond: Ms. Catherine Scotkovsky!  

I hope you are keeping well.  I am very confident the seed of grace is being planted by Jesus deep into our souls, and when COVID-19 eventually clears, we will be well on our way to the new Garden of Eden.  God bless you during this most sacred time of year.  I remain,

Yours in Christ,
Fr. James Wallace

SUSPENSION OF SERVICES

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

MARCH 13, 2020

 

Per directive from Cardinal Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago, all Sunday and daily Masses are hereby suspended at Saint Juliana Parish.  This mandate is applicable to all parishes throughout the Archdiocese, consisting of Cook and Lake Counties.

Saint Juliana School and the Religious Education program will also be closed until further notice.  Parents should monitor communications from Mrs. Marshall and Mrs. Collins for further details.

The parish office will be open weekdays from 9am-noon.  Please call the parish office (773-631-4127) regarding the status of particular meetings and events. 

The church (7201 N. Oketo) will be open Sunday mornings from 7:30am-noon, for those who wish to pray privately.  Communion will not be distributed during this time and communion/prayer services will not occur. 

The parish website and Facebook page will contain updates, as well as information regarding a possible Sunday Mass recording.

These directives are without doubt a spiritual burden upon all of us.  Know I will be offering private Masses with all of you in my heart, as well as for the scheduled intentions.  May the Heavenly Father keep us safe and healthy, and may our love for God deepen during this time.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. James Wallace
Pastor

 
Dear Parents,
 
Dr. Rigg, Superintendent of the Office of Catholic Schools, has recently announced the closure of all Archdiocesan schools, including St. Juliana School, beginning Monday, March 16th. Please see his letter below for more information on this decision. The length of the closure has not yet been determined, but please make childcare arrangements for next week and we will continue to communicate with you as we receive additional information. Throughout the closure, all extracurricular activities will be canceled or postponed, including athletics and fine arts. I will work with the Fine Arts Association to discuss the future of Xanadu when we have more information about when school will re-open.
 
Our students will participate in e-learning throughout the closure. E-learning looks different at every grade level, and the teachers are currently working on creating e-learning plans for next week. The classroom teachers will share specifics of what e-learning will look like for their students on Monday morning via the blogs. We understand that not every child has access to a personal electronic device while at home, and we will make accommodations in our e-learning expectations as needed.
 
Fr. James and I will continue to monitor the spread of this virus and make decisions, in conjunction with the Archdiocese, that ensure the safety of our students and school community. The school office will be closed until further notice, but I will share updates via e-mail and can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. should you have any questions or concerns. 
 
Thank you,
Margie Marshall
Principal
