Fr. Laurent Mhagama's term as associate pastor for our parish will end this summer and in preparation for his next assignment, he will participate in the Catholic Leadership 360 Review process through the Archdiocese. As part of this program, our parishioners have an opportunity to recognize Fr. Laurent's gifts and share their sentiments about his ministry here.

We encourage you to visit the Archdiocese Offices and Ministry website and participate in this survey:

Leadership Survey

Tots & Company

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.


Eucharistic Adoration

Join us in church every Friday during Lent for Adoration of the Eucharist from 9am to 9pm. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament flows from the sacrifice of the Mass and serves to deepen our hunger for Communion with Christ and the rest of the Church.

Every Friday in Lent the 8:30am Mass takes is celebrated in church, followed immediately by Stations of the Cross and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Stations of the Cross will take place again at 6pm; Benediction will conclude the day of adoration at 8:45pm.

Holy Week · Triduum · Easter

Paschal Triduum 2018

From Latin, triduum translates as "three days" and in our faith, is used to signify the three days preceding a liturgical feast. Most commonly it refers to the final three days at the end of Lent and our liturgical year. Easter Triduum services recall the passion, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, as portrayed in the gospels.

All services take place in church.


Bible Study

As Father Tom Donaldson reverently and humorously stated during a parish mission, the BIBLE is Basic Information Before Leaving Earth. It's also the framework of our faith as Christians, as well as a singularly great collection of entertaining stories that rival anything you might find on the big or small screen.

Letters From Prison

In these letters of encouragement, correction and instruction written from prison, Paul lovingly inspires and challenges us to greater discipleship.

Teen Ministry

New for 2018! Saint Juliana is hosting a monthly teen ministry group for current high school students.
