Are you interested in becoming an Altar Server? Servers have an important role in the Mass, assisting the priest in the celebration of the Eucharist, which is the cornerstone of our faith. Please discuss it first with your parents, since this ministry is a commitment.
If you are presently an Altar Server, have been a Server in the past, or are interested in becoming one, you are invited to attend one of the following training sessions:
Saturday, July 24 — 1:00 pm
Sunday July 25 — 12:30pm
- Training sessions will take place in church.
- We request that a parent accompany you.
- We hope to see you at the training!

If you’re between the ages of 18 and 39, the St. Julie Young Adult Group may be for you! Plan to come to the next meeting to see what it’s all about.
Topic this Month: Why the devil wants you to fail
Where: St. Julie Parish Hall
The Men’s Group offers a way to spend some quality time with other men of our parish. Meetings are held on the last Thursday evening of each month and typically include snacks, drinks, social time, and a speaker. Topics and activities will vary. The mission of the group is “Cultivating men of all ages to be committed disciples of Jesus Christ and better husbands, fathers, and men in our community.” The group is open to men who are 21 or older.
For questions, email Chris Palma at: [email protected]
One of our parishioners has found it in his heart to minister at truck stops along his route. He said that there’s such a need to bring the love of God out into the world to men and women on the road. They spend so much time on the road and are searching for that solid faith foundation.
If you have any religious items (books, bibles, pamphlets, rosaries, prayer cards, necklaces, medals, etc.) that you’d like to donate to this very worthy ministry, please drop them off at the St. Julie Parish office (west entrance) and label it “Truck Stop Ministry.”
This ministry is made up of parishioners who pray primarily for the needs of our parish, all age groups and ministries, but also for Archdiocesan and World needs, especially for those often overlooked. No meetings and no dues! We just want your promise to pray! You’ll receive a monthly newsletter with prayer intentions as well as a prayer book and a Certificate of Ministry signed by our pastor.
If you are interested in joining this ministry or have any questions, please email Deacon Rich Miska ([email protected]) or call the parish office (708.429.6767 x212) and leave your name, phone number and address.
With God, all things are possible.

One of the Summer Youth Camps, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Chicago, will be held on-site at St. Julie Billiart Parish the week of July 18 – 23, 2021. The name Totus Tuus is Latin for “all yours.” Following is a brief explanation of the purpose of the Totus Tuus Summer Youth Camps:
“The Totus Tuus program aims to inspire young people to long for holiness, develop a deep desire for conversion and personally renew their faith with a stronger prayer life. Through evangelization and catechesis, Totus Tuus seeks to foster openness to the sacrifices and blessings of the various Christian vocations.
The program began in 1987 as a vacation bible school program in the Diocese of Wichita, Kansas. In 2007, Totus Tuus of Chicago launched its pilot program with two teams serving 10 parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago and the Diocese of Joliet. The program continues to expand, now serving over 24 parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago.”
If you have additional questions, contact Fr. Ton: [email protected]
