Julie graduated from Creighton University with a major in dance and Theology and taught for several years at an inner-city school in Milwaukee. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she attended St. John’s University in Collegeville and completed a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the years, her quest to merge diverse religious beliefs and practices through the commonalities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal source of love in all people.

Uncultivated Land and Unemployed Poor

"Whenever there are in any country uncultivated lands and unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been so far extended as to violate natural right. The earth is given as a common stock for man to labor and live on. The small landowners are the most precious part of a state."

~Thomas Jefferson

Sunday, May 30th, our church planted the community garden. We raise pumpkins to sell to the public contributing the funds to the local food bank. Our goal is to restore the topsoil on the site by using a no-till technique. Last year, the pumpkins established nice root structures through the layers we'd created on top of the depleted clay soil . Next year will be the third year for conditioning this site. Many church members hope to introduce a variety of organic vegetables on these plots to donate to the food bank.
