Parish Mission Statement

The Church of St. Jude Parish family celebrates God's presence by striving to live the Word and by sharing God's Love, Joy, and Peace.  We work to build unity through Worship, Prayer, Education, Service, Fellowship, and by ministering to the needs of each other and the community at large.  

St. Jude School


Saint Jude Catholic School is an elementary school in the Dominican tradition.  In partnership with parents, we offer children an excellent academic and religious education.  We provide a Christ-centered atmosphere in which students may grow in knowledge, truth and love.


 The goal of St. Jude Catholic School is to nurture a collaborative effort between parents, educators and clergy, to teach students the Catholic faith, the love of Jesus as a way of life, to instill academic excellence, to inspire a love of learning and to develop a sense of personal responsibility.


Parish Mission

This mission is geared for high school age and up - parents, grandparents, single or married.  Jack Rigert and Mark Schmitt will share how God's plan has been all about love since the beginning. Reflecting upon the writings of Pope Saint John Paul II, you will encounter a God who loves you infinitely and desires you to love Him in return. What better way to enter into Holy Week, than by reflecting on God’s gift of love.  Join us!


SUNDAY Jesus Reveal's God's Plan: "In the Beginning"...A Love Story

God Loves us and seeks intimacy with us, this is the Church’s astounding claim to the world! The Bible tells this love story. Tonight we follow Jesus as He takes us back “to the beginning” to reveal God’s plan before sin entered the world. This story is the beginning of authentic love. This story is the beginning of the family of God. This story is where we will begin this 3 day journey with Pope Saint John Paul II and our parish community.


MONDAY How Am I to Live? Freedom for Happiness and True Love

"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."  Jn 10:10

Pope Saint John Paul II said, “The human heart has become a battlefield between love and lust.” Jesus enters this raging battle on a Cross to free our hearts for true, authentic love. Come tonight and discover how you can obtain the freedom necessary to experience happiness and true love.


TUESDAY Surprised by Joy: You're Invited to the Wedding Feast

What is our task as Catholic Christians who truly love others as brothers and sisters and desire to share the love of the Family of God? It is nothing other than heeding Christ’s call to “Go out into the main streets and invite everyone to the wedding feast.” Join us tonight for the big finish as we celebrate the gift of God's love through Eucharistic Adoration and the sacrament of Confession .
