3Cs Discussion Forum

Discussion Schedule

All gatherings take place in church from 3:30 to 4:30pm and we encourage you to stay with us for 5:00pm Mass immediately following.

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!
