St. Jude Parish
Proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to All
Welcome to St. Jude Parish on the mountain! We are now in Ordinary Time in the Church Liturgical year and summer time! This time of year is an invitation to recreate, better yet, to be “re-created”! We are called to make sure we stop, relax and take in the beauty of creation and the warmth of God’s love. There have been Confirmations, First Communions, Baptisms, Weddings and they will continue. There are parish picnics, family cook outs, baseball games and all kinds of outdoor activities to celebrate who we are as a people of faith.
Even though we slow down we also make an effort to be present to each other on the deck, at the beach, on the front porch and in the grove. Remember all whom we love and all of what we have are gifts from God. None of our summer “hang outs” exist without God! If we do not give praise and thanks to God our activities become lifeless. Church is an important part of summer as well!
In our “recreation” may our faith be first and may the ordinary experiences of summer be filled with grace.
