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 and good health!
 
This 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time, the gospel speaks about Jesus’ encounter with the leper. The Jewish people considered leprosy to be a curse from God. They saw leprosy as a punishment for serious sins. Lepers were acknowledged in those times as living dead. They were regarded as useless and an embarrassment to their family and their community. Thus, they were social outcasts. 
 
But Jesus did the opposite. He interacted with a leper, “He stretched out his hand, touched him, and spoke to him. The caring actions of Jesus showed His love and concern for the leper. He did something. He healed the leper. Thus, merely feeling sympathy is not enough. Simply having compassion is insufficient. The feelings of pity must lead to good deeds. 
 
Truly Jesus wishes and wants us to be healed and cleansed from sins. Jesus wills that our hearts are cleaned and cleansed from bitterness, our eyes from malice, our minds from revenge, our lips from lies, our hands from hurting, and our lives from selfishness and slavery to our vices.
 
Praying for you,

Fr. Pao
