St. Julian's parish is a community under the Lordship of Jesus. We have been called to express our Catholic Christian belief through our personal relationships. As the Body of Christ, we serve by bringing peace, forgiveness, healing, and joy to each other. Most importantly, we receive our spiritual nourishment through good liturgy and our mutual interaction.
Being an oasis of Catholicism in a poor mountain area, we see our special mission as ecumenism, responding to the area's educational needs, being knowledgeable about our faith, and ministering to those who need us, especially the alienated and the poor.
In the end, spreading the love of Christ is our goal. We take to heart the words of St. Paul: "...the aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere faith..." 1Timothy 1:5
