Social Justice Commission
There are many ways in which the parishioners of St. Julia Parish embrace Christ's call to serve. The Social Justice Commission serves as an umbrella for the many parish outreach projects, a clearing house for new service opportunities, and as a source of education and communication of our mission as Church to live up to our call to be 'salt of the earth'. This group meets in the evenings, once per month, throughout the year. The members of the Social Justice Commission currently include: Katie & Matt Beaudry, Pat Dacey, Sr. Mary Rita Grady, Paul Karasch, Alyson Muzila, Michele Ryan, and our pastoral associate, Andrea Jackson. New members are always welcome. Please email Andrea if you would like to join or if you would like to work with the commission on a particular project.
