On Friday, January 5 the church will be open for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament following the 8:30am Mass until 9:00pm. Stop in and spend some meditative and prayerful time in the presence of our Lord.
Saint Juliana Parish is here to help people experience Jesus. We believe when you experience Jesus, you become the best version of yourself. You experience happiness. Wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome to our Catholic parish.
3 Cs in Christ Begins Sunday
On January 7 from 3:30–4:30pm in church our new discussion group will gather for its inaugural session. Tom and Marie Dombai, and Deacon Ed Dolan will be our guest speakers and facilitators. We'll spend some time talking about the book Jesus Shock! as we convene for coffee, conversation and contemplation. All are welcome!
Beginning Sunday, January 14 we're starting a monthly youth group for current high school students. Join us in church for Mass at 5pm, followed by pizza and open gym. There's no cost to participate and the teens don't need to be parishioners or alumni—all are welcome. This is a great chance to reconnect with grammar school classmates you haven't seen in a while, and make new friends, too!
On Sunday, January 7 we'll celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord, and the arrival of the Magi in Bethlehem. The 9:30 Mass is also our monthly family liturgy celebration. Our hosts are 5th grade students and families from our school and religious education programs and they'd love to see a packed house of smiling faces, young and old, so please join us.
Pardon our Dust
In preparation for upcoming enhancements to the main vestibule of the church and choir loft, asbestos flooring will be abated by a licensed contractor later this month. Pews have been removed from the cry room and replaced with folding chairs for the duration of the project and the choir loft will be closed.
We're excited about the improvements that will be funded by the To Teach Who Christ Is campaign and apologize for any inconvenience as we proceed. Father James provides an update about the project in Chapter Five of the Experience Jesus Chronicles.
Welcome back, SJS and RE students! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break in the warm embrace of faith, family and friends.
On Tuesday, January 6, parents of SJS and RE students preparing to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion later this spring will gather in the school hall for an important informational meeting.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for our annual open house to kick off Catholic Schools Week: Sunday, January 28 from 11am to 2pm. Spread the word!
This week's letter from Father James highlights the importance of the number three, beyond the message of the Three Wise Men and their gifts.
