This past year was a Jubilee Year of Mercy, during which Pope Francis asked us to receive and show mercy, so that the work of God would be made manifest in His Church today. The Jubilee may be over, but we at St. Julia Parish are committed more than ever to continuing the Church’s mission through the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. This winter our community is planning a parish-wide effort to focus on combatting global hunger: please stay tuned for updates on all of our events!
