St. Jude Parish
Proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to All
All I want for Christmas is to know and to follow God’s will in my life.
I want to imitate Christ by the way I live my life.
I truly desire to be a disciple of Christ.
Can we see ourselves making any of these wishes for Christmas? Does our faith allow us to see past the commercialization of Christmas to the reality of what we celebrate? Do we recognize Jesus’ gift of the Church in our midst to help us accomplish that very wish?
Each year people tell us that it is harder to keep the real meaning of Christmas alive in their hearts given the secularization of the culture. That doesn't mean Christmas gifts and celebrations are bad; it just means we have to stay focused on the real meaning of Christmas and help our families see the light, Jesus Christ.
That is what the Parishes of St. Jude and St. Mary are all about: forming disciples of Jesus Christ all year long, not just at Christmas. Join us for Sunday Mass, Eucharistic Adoration on Monday evenings or daily in our chapel, Adult Education, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and serving the poor in spirit and resources. There is something for everyone at our parishes!
As you make your New Year’s resolutions, why not include drawing closer into the love of Jesus Christ and sharing that love with your community? Our parishes are about conversion so that we can better love God and neighbor.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to meet to discuss how you can be more involved in our parishes or how the Church can help you grow closer to Christ and live out God’s will in your life.
