A Communion Reminder... as we continue safe protocols
~
It has been quite a while since we have mentioned reception of Communion during the pandemic. Especially with more people attending Mass in person, it is time to remind everyone of a few basics:
• Eucharistic Ministers will stand just behind the line at the front.
• People process from the back of the church via the side aisle: the last shall be first. Also, returning is easier if the wall seats of a row go before the center seats of that row.
• Keep a 6-foot distance when coming to Communion and returning to your seat.
• Present your hands as flat as possible. Please do not grab the Host. Let the minister place the Host onto your hand.
• Move to the ‘X’ on the floor, briefly lower your mask to consume the Host, and replace your mask.
• Return to your seat via the main center aisle, even if you have a seat on the side.
                     
                                                                           ~ Thank you for your help in keeping everyone safe and healthy.  
We need Your Voice

 

The Diocese of Cleveland  and St. Julie Billiart is asking for your voice.

 

Have you heard about a survey named:  The Disciple Maker Index.  This valuable tool (created by The Catholic Leadership Institute) is a simple survey that can help St. Julie’s to expand our spiritual footprint. The purpose is to engage parishioners in reflecting upon their spiritual growth and discipleship.  It will help to identify the ways in which our parish effectively supports that growth and look at opportunities to better support that growth in the future.  In addition, the survey will provide valuable input to help the pastor and parish leaders make decisions and plan effectively in order that the pastor and parish leaders have a sense of where to focus their evangelization efforts.

To participate in this survey and to learn more about it, go to:  www.dioceseofcleveland.org/offices/parish-life/missionary-discipleship/dmi-survey

The deadline for participation has been extended to April 19th.  While this information is relatively late in being brought to the forefront, I believe it has a value that can only enhance our faith journey!  Your opinions will be of great value as we move forward from this pandemic.

 

It is very important to ensure you that your responses (name, identity) ARE confidential.  Only the data will be shared back to the pastor and diocesan representatives.

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, As we celebrate the Easter Season, the Resurrection of Jesus continues to strengthen the grace of our Baptism. From those sacred waters we are called to live in the flowing stream of His love. Every sacrament strengthens us and encourages us to live as sons and daughters of a loving God. Please remember to pray for the younger members of our community who will soon be celebrating the sacraments of First Eucharist (May 1st) and Confirmation (May 8th).

 

Congratulations to Denise Pastula who was Baptized, Confirmed, and received the Holy Eucharist at the Easter Vigil last Saturday.

 

On this Second Sunday of Easter (Divine Mercy Sunday), grace flows into the lives of the disciples and the early church. Thomas’ disbelief turns into belief upon the sight of the resurrected Lord. While our experience of Jesus is through Sacrament, Scripture and Church, it is no less powerful. “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is begotten by God, and everyone who loves the Father loves also the one begotten by him. In this way we know that we love the children of God when we love God and obey his commandments.” (1 John 5:1-2) Take time this week to experience God’s grace and mercy.

 

The Easter Season lasts until Pentecost for a reason: We need to celebrate and be refreshed… our sins have been forgiven and Christ has conquered death, giving us eternal life and the promise of our own bodily resurrection on the last day. Alleluia!

 

                                                                                                                                    Fr. George

 

A Special Thank You to all who helped in any way during Holy Week and Easter. It takes many hours to plan, prepare, decorate, clean and coordinate each event. It was an excellent celebration of God’s redeeming grace. May God Bless each of you for your dedication and efforts.   

 

It was a blessing to celebrate Easter with so many persons in attendance as well as virtually. I have so missed your smiling faces and greetings after Mass.

 

Let’s keep it going as we try to roll back this past year!
