Weekday Masses resumed on Tuesday, May 26, IN THE CHURCH at 8:30 a.m.
Our return to the public celebration of Sunday Mass is Saturday May 30, at 5:00 and Sunday May 31, at 9:00 only.

Some brief general information:
The presumption is that many individuals will remain home for Mass, so for now we are going to begin with the 5:00 p.m. Saturday Mass and ONE MASS on SUNDAY at 9:00 a.m.
Remember: The obligation to attend Mass has been dispensed for the remainder of the year.
Mass will continue to be provided on the website. It will be recorded at the 5:00 Mass and be made available late on Saturday evening for Sunday morning.
If you are ill... PLEASE stay home and worship with us virtually via the recorded Mass available on Sunday morning.
Face Masks must be worn upon entering the building and while in the building. This is for the safety of everyone. The Corona Virus has not gone away and without testing, no one knows who a carrier might be or may even be infected.

Click here for a printable copy of this prayer.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.

A Pentecost Message from Fr. George
Greetings Parishioners and friends of St. Julie’s,
WELCOME BACK TO THE CHURCH AND PUBLIC MASSES
Today we conclude the Easter Season of 2020 with The Feast of Pentecost. It has been an Easter Season unlike any other and one which I hope to never experience again!
Jesus stood before his disciples and said: “Peace be with you.” He showed them his hands and his side, repeated the greeting and breathed upon them saying: “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive men’s sins, they are forgiven them; if you hold them bound, they are held bound.”
It is the same spirit which sends us forth into the world. By the gift of the Holy Spirit, each of us has the capacity to live the Christian life. God grants us the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the journey: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety and Fear of the Lord. In addition, he gives each of us special gifts to pour into the community. What is your gift? Have you used it to heal, proclaim, forgive or even preach the good news?
And finally, the Fruits of the Spirit enable us to recognize the presence of having chosen and lived the Christian life. They are: charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control and chastity. They are the signs and source of our happiness.
Happy Pentecost Everyone! Keep your social distancing! Wear a face mask! Catch the Spirit (not the virus) and LIVE the new life!
