Ministries Working Together

Two of our friars serve in pastoral ministry at the Newman Catholic Student Center Parish at UNC at Chapel Hill, NC. Fr. Timothy Kulbicki, OFM Conv. (Pastor & Campus Minister), Fr. William Robinson, OFM Conv. (Parochial Vicar & Associate Campus Minister), and the Newman Catholic Community share a special relationship with our province’s Siler City, NC pastoral ministry of St. Julia Catholic Community; a culturally diverse parish of more than 2,000 parishioners. Although thriving spiritually under the pastoral leadership of Our Lady of the Angels Province friar, Fr. Julio Martinez, OFM Conv., many of St. Julia’s parishioners struggle with the area’s high rate of unemployment and lack of affordable health care.
The coronavirus pandemic has only made such struggles worse.
In a Annual Advent Giving Tree effort, Newman Catholic Student Center Parish is collecting to purchase $25 Walmart and Food Lion gift cards—two stores that are easily accessible in Siler City. St. Julia’s parish staff will then distribute the gift cards according to the needs of parish household, allowing them to determine how best to provide for their needs and desires at Christmas. Anyone can contribute up through December 12, 2021 – The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The gift cards will be delivered on December 15, 2021.
