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

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,

Greetings of peace!

This 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, the Gospel illustrates the dynamics of envy. The laborers in the vineyard reported to work at different times, agreeing to receive the same amount of pay. At day’s end, those who worked earlier begrudged those who worked later for their equal pay. Sad and angry at their co-workers and the landowner, they felt only betrayal and unfairness. They felt they deserved more and forgot to focus on their blessing.

From the Gospel, we learn that what was given to the workers was not based on efficiency or profitability, on competence or responsibility. What can we conclude about God? In the gospel, the laborers did not perform the same length of service and yet received the same pay, and here we learn certain truths about God. One is that for God, it is not the length of service but the love we put into the work that matters. God is after dedication and commitment. God is after quality, not quantity. This is the mystery of God’s gracious love. Two is that God is always ready to give. God is always gracious. God is always offering many beautiful opportunities to us, but God will never be gracious to an envious person.

Praying for you,

Fr. Pao
