Is It Time to Come Back?

Summer Office Hours

The office hours from June 1st through August 31 will be 9AM - 2PM.  This is because there are not many calls or visitors after 2PM each day during the summer months.  This will help reduce our operating expenses, as our summer income is greatly reduced.  For more info call the office during normal summer hours

St. Joseph Pilgrimage

The parish is having a pilgrimage to St. Joseph of the Forrest Church on September 11th.   The pilgrimage will start at 9 AM and end at 2PM.  The pilgrimage is to honor and learn more about Saint Joseph.  What better place to do that then in a church dedicated to Saint Joseph.  The pilgrimage is limited to 40 people.  Due to health concerns, we will not be carpooling as a group from St. Jude to St. Joseph of the Forrest.  So, please meet us at St. Joseph of the Forrest Church by 9AM on Sep 11th.  You can sign up by calling the parish office during normal office hours.  It is a first come first served.  It is open to the whole family.  For more info email:

Our Catholic Appeal

Our parish goal this year is $ 38,784.  Over the past few weeks, we have prayed about, thought about and talked about the ministries supported by Our Catholic Appeal. Now it is time for all of us to share a portion of our treasure, so these ministries can continue. If you received your 2021 Our Catholic Appeal packet and made your pledge, thank you. If you have not yet made your pledge, please consider doing so today. By supporting the ministries of our diocese, every parish, including ours, is better equipped to carry out the work of Christ.
