Letters From a Pastor to His People

  • Work for Your Prayer 20 August 2017 | By

    Dear Parishioners,

    Work for your prayer. That is one message we can take away from our Gospel on this 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time. A Canaanite woman asks Jesus for help and he does not respond. The woman does not quit. She keeps asking. In fact, she asks so much the apostles become annoyed. “Jesus' disciples came and asked him, ’Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us’” (Matt 15:23).

Our parish wants you to be happy, healthy and holy. The experience of Jesus in the soul, mind and body are thus our three priorities.

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

School Begins August 21

We're looking forward to seeing our K-8 students bright and early Monday morning!

Teachers will be waiting in the parking lot to greet students and escort them to their new classrooms. Parents are encouraged to join us and take pictures until the bell rings, when students will enter the building. Students are out of uniform, and dismissal is at 11:30am.

Tuesday, August 22

Teachers will again await their students in the parking lot and lead them into the building when the first bell rings. Many parents join us for pictures in the parking lot as the students are in uniform today. It's a full day with dismissal at 2:50pm, and morning and after-school extended care begins for pre-registered students.

Attention Preschool Parents!

August 21 and 22 are Get Acquainted Days for our 3-year-old and 4-year-old classes. Stop by with your child any time between 8:30am and 11:00am to drop off school supplies, visit the classroom, and meet your child's teacher. This is the perfect opportunity for any last-minute questions. Students with last names A-L are invited to visit on Monday, and last names M-Z are invited to visit on Tuesday. The first regular school day for preschool students (full-day and half-day) is Wednesday, August 23rd.
