Monthly Speaker Series:  St. Jude hosts a different speaker each month September through May to share their story of faith and break open God's Word and the rich teachings of our Church

Bible Study:  Bible Study is led by Anita Besch, graduate of the Diocesan Biblical Institute.  This year, the group will study the Gospel of Matthew.  This Gospel introduces us to Jesus as the Master Teacher whose words of instruction are captured in large teaching sections. The group will use Little Rock Scripture Study: The Gospel According to Matthew – Part One.  This book can be ordered at Barnes and Noble or on Amazon.

Bible Study meets Tuesday Nights. Please contact Anita Besch at, for more information or to register.
