Dear Parishioners, Following Jesus Christ means keeping informed about His teachings and about how to spread His message. So, I've set up a table in the gathering space of St. Julia Church.

Reflecting on God’s Word

In his book Live and Learn and Pass It On, H. Jackson Brown, Jr. has published some lists of the lessons that people have learned in life. These contain one-liners that capture the wisdom gained by youngsters and oldsters through their everyday adventures. Clearly these sayings give expression to the voice of experience. So why does ...Read more →

Reflecting on God’s Word

Our experience of the world is often an experience of opposites: truth and lies, goodness and evil, beauty and ugliness.

Reflecting on God’s Word

When you think of a king coming before his people, the image of someone riding on a donkey does not come to mind. If the Lone Ranger had Silver and Roy Rogers had Trigger, a similar white  stallion would seem most itting for a king. Not an ass, even a purebred one. But this image ...Read more →

          Dear Parishioners, Pope Francis talks a lot about evangelization, an often misunderstood word. We tend to picture people knocking on doors and trying to push their religious beliefs on those of other churches or faiths --- like holding their hearers captive! Considered in this way, it leaves a sour taste in our mouths. The truth is ...Read more →
