"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 good health! I am happy to announce that we have some great programs and projects we can all look forward to in coming days and months. I am all the more excited, because some of those have not yet been done in the past in this parish. In my first letter to all of you last July, my vision for this parish family is to be a more vibrant and active community of faith. For this to happen, as your pastor, the same level of commitment, diligence, and hard work will be foremost in my ministry and leadership as I did to my past parishes. And I hope that you will also do the same for our community in terms of involvement and participation.
FREE (FRESH) FOOD BOX DISTRIBUTION. St Jude Parish will take an active role as a host in leading the program of the Archdiocese for those who may need help with food on their table. I worked hard for this to make it happen, especially through the volunteerism of the Knights of Columbus at St. Jude and in the Eugene Vicariate. This program is open for all families from all churches in the area. This program will continue every Saturday of this month of October (17, 24, 31). Pick up your fresh food box from 8:30 am to 11:30 am at our parking lot. I am driven to do this, because of my love and care for you and for those in need of help.
NEW ALTAR FLOORING PROJECT FOR 53rd PARISH FEAST DAY. October 28, 2020 is the Feast Day of our Patron Saint Jude Thaddeus. There will be two high Masses on that day (12:00 noon and 7:00 pm). As we celebrate the 53rd feast of St. Jude, I am happy to announce to you that we will have an altar flooring improvement. It will be transformed into a laminated wooden floor to make the altar space more dignified. Altar floor is a sacred space, where we consecrate the bread and wine into the precious Body and Blood of Jesus. Right now, it is worn-out, old, faded and full of stains which do not fit to be a dignified space for the Lord. Thus, we will have a new altar flooring on Easter 2021 (April). There will be a Feast of St. Jude Envelope that will be sent to your home in the coming days to help us with the fund raising. The second phase of its fund raising will be this Christmas in December 2020. Please help make this project come true.
ALL SAINTS CUSTOM DAY FOR KIDS AT MASS. The Solemnity of All Saints Day is on the last weekend of October 31 and November 1, 2020. I encourage the parents to let their children wear their favorite Saint costumes on that weekend. I will let them be part of the entrance procession of the Mass.
PARISH DEDICATION BANNER FOR OUR DEPARTED LOVED ONES. In the same weekend of All Saints Day, we will pray for our departed loved ones, which will be in the list of the Dedication (Memorial) Banner. The banner will be blessed by the priest at Mass to pray for your loved ones. There is a donation of $10.00 for every name. We will have the banner made by a commercial printing company. Please call the office to sign up. The registration is only open until October 29, 2020.
Take care always,
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/
