Helping Ukraine - One Family at a Time
Our Welcome Circle for Ukraine has forged ahead. Terry Flanagan and Chris Vacca (St. Julie Parishioners) are heading up the circle. Parishioners from St. Peter and St. Julie Parishes have filled in the gaps for the other critical roles. We will be embarking on the process of connecting with a Ukrainian family, going through the proper government channels to bring them to the States and then putting together the nuts and bolts (housing, education, translation, et cetera) of the welcome.
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.

Last weekend’s Confirmation at the 5:00 p.m. Mass was a great blessing for the seven young people who were confirmed and for St. Julie Parish. It was their personal Pentecost. As we celebrate Pentecost this weekend with the Church Universal, let us pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
This Solemnity is a special day for each of us. Pentecost was the event that moved the disciples out of the Upper Room and into the streets. St. Peter and the other Eleven apostles proclaimed Jesus Christ and baptized 3000 repentant believers. In truth, it is the Birthday of the Church. However, more than an important historical event, Pentecost is to be the perpetual reality of the Church. It is only by the power of the Holy Spirit that we will be able to remain faithful to Jesus Christ and fulfill our mission of evangelizing the world. Let us pray:
COME HOLY SPIRIT-TODAY AND EVERYDAY UNTIL THE LORD RETURNS!
Monday, May 29, is also a special day locally and universally. Locally, it is Memorial Day. We especially remember those men and women who sacrificed in the service of our country so that we can enjoy the rights and freedoms we have as citizens of the United States. Though some people have taken to bashing the United States, highlighting its faults and failures, I am grateful to be a citizen of this country. No country is perfect. However, this is a land of opportunity, justice, and freedom. I pray that each of us express our gratitude by using our freedom to serve others and proclaim Christ. Mass on Memorial Day will be at 9:00 a.m. and all are welcome.
And Monday, being the day after Pentecost, is now the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church. May her prayers and example help us to live as the faithful Bride of Christ.
St. Julie Parish has upgraded its ability to livestream Mass. For the last few weeks we had irresolvable problems. This week we switched streaming services. We are hopeful that this will smooth out the streaming experience for those who view the livestream. Our upgrade will also allow us to stream other events on and off campus. Blessed Carlo Acutis, pray for us!
The weekend of June 10 & 11, is the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ. This feast day highlights the reality that the Eucharist is the Real Presence of Jesus Christ, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. In honor of our Lord, St. Peter and St. Julie Parishes will be processing with the Blessed Sacrament from St. Peter Parish to St. Julie Parish (a little over two miles) at the conclusion of the Noon Mass. Our route will be down Center Ridge Rd. to Emerald St. (by Giant Eagle). We will cross Center Ridge Rd. and continue down the side streets and enter the property of St. Julie’s through their private road, Julie Lane. After a brief period of adoration and prayer, we will have Benediction and a social. And fret not: rides back to St. Peter Parish to pick up your cars will be provided.
This is the final call for Parish Council Nominations. On the weekend of June 4-5, the ballot will be presented to the parish. The election will take place on the weekend of June 10-11.
