Dear parish family and friends of St. Julia,
Count our Blessings. Our community of St. Julia has been blessed in endless ways. The gift of our children first comes to mind. The children, and in a special way the Kindergarten children of St. Peter Catholic Elementary School first come to mind. Last Sunday, they so beautifully led us in our ministries at our 9:00 a.m. mass, and again at our end of school year mass this past Wednesday. These children are a gift to our community. Graduations take place next week, with St. Peter on Monday and Denis Morris Catholic High School on Tuesday. For the blessings of these young people, our graduates, we count our blessings. For the gift of our families, and the love we share, we count our blessings. For the opportunity to gather as a parish family for our BBQ this Sunday, we count our blessings. For the gift of this community that we call home, we count our blessings. For the freedom we enjoy to practice and live out our faith, we count our blessings. For the wonderful things taking place in our parish, as we continue to care for this church dedicated to St. Julia, we count our blessings, and for your continued generosity to our parish. The endless list of things to count our blessings for, we give thanks.
And for the most precious gift of all, the gift of our faith, we count our blessings.
All of these blessings we count come from God.
And for each of you, my parish family, a blessing in my life, I count my blessings.
May God continue to bless each of you and those that you love, and I wish you a safe and blessed summer season. I look forward to us gathering for mass this weekend.
From Our Pastor
