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,

Blessings of the Advent Season!
This weekend, we officially enter into the Season of Advent, a time of great anticipation for the Birth of Jesus on Christmas. What does the Advent Season mean to us? 
Every time the Holy Season of Advent arrives, we are always filled with so much joy, knowing that the Lord Jesus will come into the world to save us! Our heart is filled with such excitement, joy, and gratitude as it needs to worthily anticipate in hope the birth of our Savior, our Emmanuel! 
In this Season of Advent, we go through a routine of active waiting for the Lord’s birth. Indeed, waiting is a natural process, and yet no one says that it is easy to undergo. But there must be wisdom in waiting, for the whole of life is marked with it. Should we try to eliminate waiting? Should we equate waiting with wasting our time and our energy on the suspense of the future? Is waiting futile and useless drudgery? 
Or is it still a treasure trove of wisdom for human beings today?
Praying for you,

Fr. Pao
