St. Jude Catholic Church Eugene OR


St. Jude's Catholic Church in Eugene OR welcomes people of all ages and stages:
young adults, families, seniors and visitors alike.

Nestled on a hilltop in South Eugene, with a sanctuary enclosed on three sides by full length glass panels, we look out at our beautiful rock garden and our 10’ tall Risen Christ, with Spencer Butte in the background.  Our masses are blessed by the view of God's world and are often visited by God's creatures - deer, birds, wild turkeys - outside our windows!

We invite you to join us for Mass | Make sure you bookmark our new website https://www.stjudeeugene.org/

St. Jude's weekend mass is live streamed on our Facebook page.  Just click the link below and scroll down to the "Videos" section. And see all our other St. Jude postings as well!

 

"We, the people of St. Jude Parish, are a faith community who choose to come together to experience God’s love in the Roman Catholic tradition. Our fundamental mission, as a sacramental people, is to live the gospel in a way that makes us known for our love. As a diverse and inclusive Church family, we seek to provide opportunities for the growth of the whole person at all age levels and social strata. We strive to celebrate the gifts of each person, and together serve one another and our world. We invite all persons to share in our prayer, liturgical celebrations, education opportunities, social justice efforts, social activities, and Parish support. We ask God to lead us in our journey as we seek to faithfully respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ."

Dear St. Jude Family,

Blessings of peace!  
 
This 9th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Precious Body and Blood of Christ. In the Passover celebration with his disciples, the bread and wine of the Holy Eucharist became the real Body and Blood of Christ. 
 
They are not signs. They are not representations or symbols. The bread and wine provided are the true and real Body and Blood of Christ. They are substantially changed into his Body and Blood. 
 
This is not symbolic, not figurative, and not imaginary. It is a valid, real, and substantial change. Now when we go to church, we are not just visiting a space. We are encountering and experiencing Jesus himself.
 
Praying for you,

Fr. Pao
