Letters From a Pastor to His People

  • In the Weeds 23 July 2017 | By

    Dear Parishioners,

    Our Lord's parables can be applied not just to the Kingdom of God at large, but to us individually. When we hear about the wheat and the weeds in the Gospel this Sunday (cf. Matt 13:24-30) there is a very personal message.

    In the parable, the master tells the slave not to pull up the weeds. “Let them grow together until harvest,” he instructs. Sure, the parable informs us about the nature of the Church. The Church has “weeds”—flaws, sinners, and so forth. No field is perfect, and we should not grow too frustrated when confronted with this imperfection. The Church, though holy, will never be perfect.

The Experience Jesus Chronicles

Experience Jesus

Chapter One

On Easter Sunday I unveiled a vision for our parish: Experience Jesus. People are attracted to good experiences in life: a Cubs game, a movie, a concert. Well, Jesus is the best experience there is, better than any movie or game. Putting Jesus front and center is how we will be strong as a parish. St. Juliana is being restructured so that we can best Experience Jesus.

Saint Juliana School

Welcoming Our New Principal

Dear Families,

The principal search committee and I are very excited to share with you that we have selected and hired a new principal for Saint Juliana School, Mrs. Marjorie Marshall! Mrs. Marshall comes to us highly recommended from Saint Cyprian School, where she has served as principal for the past four years.

Mrs. Marshall is an energetic and dynamic leader who has a passion for Catholic education and the formation of all people who walk through the doors of a school. Saint Cyprian has benefitted tremendously from her leadership, and our search committee has no doubt that Saint Juliana will benefit from Mrs. Marshall as well.
