Dear parish family and friends of St. Julia,
This weekend we will hear Psalm 89 sung as part of our responsorial psalm: "For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord."
The Psalms, found in the Old Testament are a collection of prayers assembled over several centuries, composed of sacred songs, or sacred poems, meant to be sung. The psalms have been used since Jesus' time as the public prayer of the Church.
With the end of school year masses now complete, diplomas handed out at graduations, and teachers turning off the lights in their classrooms for another school year, we give thanks for the goodness that the Lord has showered upon our children and their families, administrators, teachers, and support staff too.
As we begin this new month and enter into the summer months together as a parish family, my prayers of thanksgiving continue as I sing and give thanks for the goodness that the Lord has poured out upon our community. I also pray that the goodness of the Lord will shower upon each of you and those that you love, not only this day, but always.
While many from our parish will travel over the summer months, please know of my prayers and be assured that we will be united in prayer at the celebration of the mass here at our spiritual home of St. Julia.
Enjoy the long weekend and see you at mass,
From Our Pastor
