  Parish Religious Education Program (PREP)

The Saint Julie Billiart Parish Religious Education Program is committed to a dynamic partnership with parents in the religious education of their children. Parents are the primary educators of their children. Parents model the saving love of Jesus Christ in their actions and words and teach their children from infancy throughout their lives. At Baptism parents make a promise to God and the church to undertake the responsibility of providing Christian formation for their children, and the church promises to assist the parents in this responsibility. The Religious Education Program tries to assist parents to build on and continue Christian formation with formal classes. This partnership between parents and the religious education program requires ongoing communication, collaboration, and trust in God’s love and guidance.

Children and teens anticipating reception of First Communion and Confirmation should participate in a religious education program at least one year prior to the celebration of the sacrament. For instance, if a parent wants his or her child to receive First Communion in second grade, the child must attend class for all of first grade and second grade. Children preparing to receive the sacraments and are home schooled will be asked to participate in retreats or other special programs designed to help in faith formation of all the children in the parish.

PREP meets on Sunday mornings, 9:45 to 10:45 AM, at the Fenmont Center. Classes are held for Grades 1 – 12.

Registration for the following school year is held in April with classes beginning the following September. There is a $10 registration fee that is due at that time, but will be deducted from the total tuition fee.

Together with parents, the St. Julie Billiart Religious Education program staff hopes to instill and nurture a love for Jesus Christ and His church, a growing understanding and lifelong participation in the sacraments and a habit of regular prayer and Christian Service.

In the name of Jesus, we ask you, heavenly Father, to bless our endeavors, so that our children may grow in wisdom and grace.

  Society of St.Vincent de Paul

The purpose of the Society is the spiritual development of the members and the living out in practical ways of the Catholic faith.

The Society “seeks, in a spirit of justice and charity and by person-to-person involvement of its members, to help those who are suffering... No act of charity is foreign to the Society.” (Rule of the Society)

The Society hopes to help meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those who need help, whether they are in hospitals, nursing homes, homeless shelters, prisons, or in their own homes. Each day a member of the Society responds to a call for help, bearing witness to the love of Christ.

“Catholic in character, the Society is open to all who wish to live their faith by loving and serving their neighbor.” (Rule of the Society)

The St. Vincent de Paul Society is an international, Catholic lay organization, founded in 1833 in Paris by Frederic Ozanam and his companions. The conference meets every MONDAY evening at 7:30 PM at the parish office. The conference meets to discuss weekly business, share in fellowship, and grow in its mission as Vincentians.
“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few...” (Luke 10:2) The parish’s continued financial support is necessary for the society to function. The members of St. Vincent de Paul serve as an intermediary between those able to help and those needing help within the parish boundaries.

St. Vincent de Paul needs people with time to serve. Everyone has something to offer. Everyone has room to grow.

Bereavement Ministry

The Church calls each member of Christ’s Body to participate in the ministry of consolation: to care for the dying, to pray for the dead, to comfort “those who mourn.” (Order of Christian Funerals, #8)

The goal of this ministry is the continuing development and implementation of a parish bereavement ministry that answers the need to serve grieving people in a special way.

At the present time the bereavement ministry is limited to liturgy planning, the presence of a choir at the liturgy,
and St. Julie’s Heavenly Kitchen.

The Heavenly Kitchen helps coordinate and host a reception at our Fenmont Center or at the home of the family in need, following a funeral liturgy at our church. The committee will provide a lunch for 25 people either at the Fenmont Center or in the home of a family that is within a 10 mile radius from our church. More information about the Heavenly Kitchen can be found under the “Volunteers Needed” link on the main page of our website. Or by clicking the link below.

This ministry can always use the talents and gifts of people in the parish. In visiting the bereaved, in liturgical planning / ministry (including Choir), in hospitality and in group-support, your assistance will be appreciated.
