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,
Today’s scriptures continue with a version of last week’s theme of being called to follow Jesus and to hear God speaking to us. Last week the message came to us through the Book of Samuel and the Gospel of John… this week it is the Prophet Jonah and the Gospel of Mark.
Throughout our life journey each of us are called by God. While we have often heard the phrase ‘called by God’, have we explored The Call? Last week we heard the call of the first disciples from the Gospel of John (Jn 1:35-42). This week it is from the Gospel of Mark (Mk 1:14-20). Jesus’ call to Simon, Andrew, James, and John was one which changed their lives. They became fishers of men abandoning their nets to follow Jesus… and yet, they still fished as we read in other gospel narratives. Most likely, fishing placed food on the table – but now their life focus was on Jesus and bringing others to Him.
The people of Nineveh were also changed through the preaching of Jonah. They turned from their evil ways. They repented of their sinfulness and embraced penance while humbling themselves before God and one and other.
And so, once again… Isn’t it interesting how life can change when we have not only truly heard but also acted upon God’s call? Choosing to follow Christ in all we think, do and say should be the root of our day. And yet: we forget, fail, or deliberately choose to ignore what we have been taught. As members of the Body of Christ, we have been called in and through our Baptism to be faithful. We are called to not only the foundations of our faith, but also to the teachings of our Catholic Church.
How are you being called?
