Our Siler City, NC pastoral ministry of St. Julia Catholic Community is a welcoming, multicultural Christian Catholic community in the heart of Chatham County, with a rich parish history. This past year and a half have been tough on parish communities throughout the world, but July 2021 was a big month for the St Julia Catholic Community as they, and their pastor – Fr. Julio Martinez, OFM Conv. (pictured at right), welcomed a new Deacon and are planning to grow the Middle School, High School and Young Adult Ministry. This vibrant parish provides parishioners and visitors with not only Liturgical and Sacramental celebration opportunities, but Discipleship, Community, Social and Outreach events, as well. This past July 2021, the St. Julia’s Sister Mission and Justice and Peace Committees welcomed Our Lady of the Angles Province Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) Chairman & Friar Julio’s confrere – Fr. Michael Lasky, OFM Conv. – for a conversation about the parish’s social ministry journey, while hearing about Friar Michael’s own journey with JPIC.
At the end of last month, during the evenings of July 26 – 30, 2021, the young people of the parish ages 7-12, were able to join in “Rocky Railway – Jesus’ Power Pulls Us Through” Summer Bible Study. Friar Julio shared some great photos from the week stating, “Our little ones traveled ‘on the train’ for a week and had lots of fun with Jesus too! Our volunteers and catechists are totally awesome!”
