Letters From A Pastor to His People †June 2, 2019
There are many hills in the Holy Land, and when a figure from the Scriptures ascends one, we should pay attention. Abraham goes up Mount Moriah to sacrifice his son Isaac. The angel stays Abrahams slaughtering hand, Abraham is established as the father of Israel, and Moriah will become the site of the temple mount in Jerusalem. About 1,000 years later King David will ascend that very same hill to recreate the nation of Israel. His son, Solomon, will construct the temple on that mount.
Noahs ark lands on Mount Ararat. Moses ascends Mount Sinai, is literally wrapped in a cloud of divinity, and comes down with the Ten Commandments. And Elijah defeats the pagan priests atop Mount Carmel.
Forty Days after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Acts of the Apostlesrecords that Jesus ascended into heaven. The ascension is an important Christian holiday, which attests to the reality of Jesus Christ returning to heaven, with the promise of returning again in the future. The Ascension is the final component of the paschal mystery, which consists also of Jesus crucifixion (and related components like his suffering and death) and resurrection.
Join us for this Holy Day of Obligation this weekend.

2019 UPDATE FROM THE SAINT JULIANA PASTORAL COUNCIL
Dear Fellow Parishioners

As chairperson of the Pastoral Council, I wanted to take a moment to first thank all the members of the council Steve Baggio, Kathleen Barton, Chris Boldt, Patty Collins, Barb Ernat, Eileen Fealy, Julie Hammerle, Helen Heylin, Anastasia Jakubow, Dan and Stacey Lenihan, Kim McAuliffe, Eileen Mitchell, Chet Moylan, Dana Oswald, Matt Petrash, Steve and Lauren Silich, Teresa Simonetti, and Jon and Nicole Utz.
There are so many amazing people who volunteer in our parish. It is our relationships with each other that are more important than anything we do. Your time and talent continue to draw us closer to the Heart of Christ, the same Christ we bring to the world through our ministries.
On the first and third Sunday of every month during the 1100am Mass we offer Family Mass. †Join us on June 2nd at 1100am for this celebratory way for family members at every age to participate in prayer and worship together.
Each week on Tuesday evening we offer a onehour talk about a different theological topic. The presenter is our pastor, Father James Wallace, and we gather in the chapel, located in the ministry center building.
We hope youll find the talks interesting and helpful in your faith formation. The talks are not interdependent of each other, so feel free to join us when you can. All are welcome!
Please join us June 4th @ 700pm for a presentation on Napoleon, John Vianney and the French Church the founder of the Society of Jesus. We will not only discuss his life and story, but his spiritual principles, which are very helpful for everyday life
This novena in honor of the Holy Spirit is the oldest of all novenas since it was first made at the direction of Our Lord Himself when He sent His apostles back to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost. It is still the only novena officially prescribed by the Church.
In 1897, Pope Leo XIII asked the whole church to renew its devotion by praying a Novena to the Holy Spirit in the nine days leading up to Pentecost (Divinum Illud Munus). He asked that this novena be done every year in every parish throughout the world. Addressed to the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, it is a powerful plea for the light and strength and love so sorely needed by every Christian. It focuses on the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit Novena starts on Ascension (Thursday or Sunday) and ends on Pentecost Sunday
Pentecost celebrates the birthday of the Church, when the Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles in the Acts of the Apostles. Pentecost, the 50th and final day of the Easter Season, celebrates the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles in the book of Acts, ushering in the beginning of the Church. 50 Days after Jesus resurrection (and 10 days after his Ascension), the apostles were gathered together, confused and contemplating their future purpose and mission. On Pentecost, a flame rested upon the shoulders of the apostles, and they began to speak in tongues (languages), by the power of the Holy Spirit. Thus Pentecost is a time for many Catholics and other Christians to celebrate two important realities the Holy Spirit and the Church.
