Journey Through Lent at St. Julie's
Take some time this Lent to journey through Lent. Many opportunities for you to reflect, respond, and renew yourself. Invite your family and friends to journey with you. All events will be in the Church.
Helping Ukraine - One Family at a Time
Thank you to those who were able to attend the introduction meeting on Tuesday, March 21st. Much information was shared about this pilot program where we can assist a family in need from Ukraine.
The next steps in the discernment is to review information presented and discuss how/if we are able to make it happen.
There is a long road ahead for this project including a 2 year commitment from St. Julie's and St. Peters.
Please look for more information in the coming weeks as we will need many talents and treasures to make this idea a reality. What a great way to get involved!
The parishes of St. Julie Billiart and St. Peter's just completed a 3 day Lenten journey where we walked through Holy Week.
A special THANK YOU to Mrs. Karen May for leading us to discovering and rediscovering the events that changed us forever.
Thank you to the PSR team for providing raffle baskets for our younger participants.
Special Thanks to our amazing choir and to Mr. Danny O'Brien for setting the tone with striking music.
Lets continue to walk together through Lent and prepare for Holy Week ~ 2023.
THANK YOU FOR A GREAT LENTEN MISSION EXPERIENCE
A Three Day Lenten Mission with Karen May
A Prayer for Ukraine
God of Love,
Our world is wrought with war and violence,
as brother turns on brother,
and the innocent awake to gunfire and bombs.
May Your compassion and healing
move hearts and bring a new day to Ukraine.
Fortify your children to resist aggression
and instead become instruments of peace.
We ask this in the name of the One
who is the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.

From the desk of Fr. Franco
I met with Bishop Malesic on Tuesday of last week. He called the meeting to find out how my work as administrator was going at St. Julie Parish. During the meeting he handed me a letter from him that began:
"After proper consultation, I hereby conclude your assignment as Administrator of St. Julie Billiart Parish, North Ridgeville and appoint you Pastor of St. Julie Billiart Parish in North Ridgeville. This appointment will become effective 21 March, 2023."
I am your new pastor.
Like Pope Francis, let me begin my time as your pastor asking for your prayers. Jesus said, I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. (John 15:5) The flip of being fruitless without the Lord comes from the words of St. Paul: I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me. Let us pray for each other. Together, in Christ, we can do good, beautiful, and fruitful things for the Lord.
Fr. Bob Franco
