Every Friday morning when Saint Juliana School is in session we host a casual gathering for tots (age 0-3) and their caregivers in the Ahearn Activity Center from 8:15 to 10am. Ring the bell for entry through the silver doors on Oketo Avenue, directly across from the church. There's a ramp for easy stroller access and plenty of room inside to park them.
What does it mean to join the parish?
The word parish originates in Judaism and identifies the body of people–Israelites–wherever they may live. Our Roman Catholic Code of Canon Law states that a parish is a "definite community of Christian faithful whose pastoral care is entrusted to its pastor." So when you hear it said that a parish is its people, it's more than just a saying; a parish really IS its people.
Joining our body of faithful Christians requires no paperwork, no pre-registration; all are welcome, all join just by their very presence at Mass, a ministry meeting, or social event.
However, most people like to officially register as members of a parish at which they find themselves involved or frequently attending services. We do encourage you to register but you'll never feel pressured to do so. Everyone is welcome at our parish gatherings, registered or not.
Registration can be started with the convenient form below, or you may call or visit our parish office during business hours. You may opt to receive church offering envelopes, or register as "no-envelopes." Either way, we will provide you with an ID number which we use when providing annual contribution statements for your tax records.
