The parish of the Shrine Church of St. Jude is a family of Christians created in the image of a loving God. He has given us faith and gifts which we nurture by His Word and Eucharist. Sent forth by Christ, we strive to share Him with others in our daily lives and to spread His message of salvation to all.
We welcome all people seeking communications with us. We respond to Christ's command to teach all people through instruction in the Catholic Faith in our religious education programs and Catholic School.
With Christ as our cornerstone, we attempt to minister to the body, mind, and spirit of our fellow human beings. We pray for God's help and guidance, and that we may love each other as brothers and sisters in the Lord building up the Kingdom if God.
