Message from Bishop Malesic on the COVID Virus and keeping people safe during the pandemic
The following message was provided to the parish on Friday, August 27th.
We encourage you to take a moment to read.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
The latest information from federal, state and local public health agencies informs us that the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus is surging in our area, causing increased illness and hospitalizations at levels not seen since the spring. For the safety of all who worship at Catholic parishes throughout the Diocese of Cleveland, I strongly encourage you -- whether vaccinated or not vaccinated -- to wear a face mask while attending Mass indoors. All who want to attend Mass, and who are otherwise vulnerable, should feel safe and welcome inside our sacred spaces. Please use charity and patience with those who do not wish to comply with this strongly stated request. You also might want to consider wearing a face mask for other indoor gatherings, especially for those not yet fully vaccinated. Wearing masks outdoors is not generally required except for activities involving close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.
Those who are ill, have significant health risk factors or care for someone who is immune-compromised or ill, as well as those who have significant fear or anxiety about contracting the coronavirus in a large group of persons are not obliged to attend Mass.
Pope Francis recently offered a message of hope and unity to the world in an effort to continue increasing confidence in the COVID-19 vaccines, specifically in communities disproportionately affected by the virus. “Thanks to God’s grace and to the work of many, we now have vaccines to protect us from COVID-19,” the pope said. “Getting the vaccines that are authorized by the respective authorities is an act of love. I pray to God that each one of us can make his or her own small gesture of love; no matter how small, love is always grand.”
I am fully vaccinated and recommend the same for my family and friends. In consideration of others, I also am wearing a mask during the distribution of holy Communion and I strongly encourage those distributing holy Communion at Mass to wear a mask while distributing as well.
Remember that the situation seems to be ever changing. This request to wear face masks is temporary and will be changed once this current level of increased coronavirus cases is over. Stay connected to information coming from national, state and local health authorities, and stay home and get tested for COVID when you are not feeling well. Following these recommendations will go a long way in helping to keep you and others around you safe.
We are all tired of this pandemic, but we must not forget that we are called to care for the health of others in times of crisis and must continue to protect our healthcare system and medical workers.
May God bless and watch over us in our time of need.
Bishop Edward C. Malesic
UPDATE ~ Food Drive to support North Ridgeville Community Care! ~ UPDATE
!!! WHAT A GREAT COMMUNITY !!!
The Lions Club of North Ridgeville picked up the donations from St. Julie Billiart this week.
The level of generosity from our community was under estimated. So much so... that the young man assisting in loading the car had to walk home since there was barely enogh room for the driver!
In addition to the physical donations, several monitary donations were provided. These will be sent from the rectory directly to Community Care to further support those in need.
We hope he had a nice walk due to your kindness and concern for others!

St. Julie Billiart ~ Amidst COVID
We continue to learn and live with Covid. While we move forward to 'return to normal' status, the delta variant continues to be forefront and a consideration taken seriously as new parish events return. As Fr. George has mentioned several times, a conservative approach is being taken and additional steps/events will evolve over the next weeks and months with the health and safety of our community as a priority.
Please continue to watch this website, our Facebook page, and information and updates provided by the various organizations and groups that call St. Julie's home.
As we have heard, the dispensation of the obligation to attend Mass has been removed. The faithful are to attend Mass unless ill, have significant health risk factors or care for someone who is immuno-compromised or ill as well as those who have significant fear or anxiety of contracting the coronavirus in a large group of persons.
From the desk of: Fr. George
A parishioner shared with me information on a podcast that I found quite interesting and inspiring. During a year where we find ourselves spending much time separated from each other, it feels like a personal invitation to journey with the Lord. It is an opportunity for each of us to follow at our own pace and from the safety and comfort of our homes.
Each day, a 20-25 minute session will guide us through several readings, a reflection, and end with a guided prayer. A few moments every day to learn and be strengthened by the holiest of books.
The Bible in a Year podcast is offered through Ascension Press and is hosted by Fr. Mike Schmitz. A brief introduction from Fr. Schmitz is located here.

A Message from Fr. George
Greetings Parishioners and friends of St. Julie’s,
So often in today’s news sources, we hear about the negative side of life… the things that sell papers. And yet, if we search closely enough – in the smaller headlines – there are reports of the positive… events, and people that tell the story of human compassion, love and forgiveness. Into which category of ‘news’ do each of us fall? Do we relay the negative or the positive? Do we aim to hurt or to help?
Jesus’ command to the crowd and to His disciples is bold and direct: “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.” This statement comes on the heels of Peter’s remarks that Jesus should not have to suffer and die as He had indicated to them. Peter didn’t want to hear the negative… but Peter also did not understand what resurrection would be.
Sorting out the news and messages needs to be filtered through eyes and ears of faith. Give it a thought: The last time that you corrected someone, was it done with charity or in malice? Even with parents to children or children toward parents, how could you have communicated the same message with greater patience, understanding or love? Shouting or demanding with a raised voice may not be the best approach.
Incorporating our faith into daily events can strengthen and encourage one and other. This week, try to find ways to highlight the positive and weave God’s hope, mercy and forgiveness into the fabric of your life.
