Dear parish family and friends of St. Julia,
In our Gospel this weekend from Matthew 16:13-20, Jesus will ask his disciples the question "who do you say I am?"
In 2023, Jesus asks us the same question.
Who is Jesus Christ for you? A healer? A friend? A consoler? The Son of God?
Each weekend we gather as a community of believers to break open the Word of God and to be fed by the Body of Christ. Every time we gather, and every time we open our Bible, something new is revealed to us, as we listen, ponder, reflect, and pray with the living Word of God. This living Word continues to ask us the question "who do you say I am?"
This fall, God will send us a new group of women and men who desire to learn about our catholic faith on our R.C.I.A. journey, and the same question will be posed to them over time.
May our hearts continue to be open to how Jesus reveals himself to us, and may we never be afraid to profess and share who Jesus Christ is for us.
I look forward to gathering together for mass this weekend, and may God bless each of you and those that you love. I can already hear the school bells off in the distance.
From Our Pastor
