This September, 98 years after her death, Julia Greeley will be honored in Rome by Pope Francis as one of the models for the worldwide Year of Mercy. St Mary's Catholic Parish in Littleton, CO is arranging a pilgrimage to Rome in September to join in Julia's celebration. Contact the parish if you want to go!
Julia overcame her birth as a slave and the intensely cruel treatment of slave owners which left her half blind and lame. Julia conquered these challenges and became known throughout Denver CO for her kindness and love for those even less fortunate than she. Julia was modest and unassuming in life, but now she is getting the accolades she deserves.
