Meet Fr. Pat!
Fr. Pat McNamee will be joining St. Jude's on December 27 as our Administrator in the interim until the Archdiocese appoints a permanent pastor (sometime between April and June 2020).
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!

Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. The normal fasting ages are 18-59. Some people are excused from fasting for medical reasons. Abstaining from meat on Fridays begins at age 14.
Our Lenten Journey
Rice Bowl and Prayer Card
Take home a Rice Bowl for your Lenten alms giving. Place it on your dinner table and offer a prayer and some monies for the poor, lonely and displaced here in Oregon and beyond.
Look for a beautiful prayer card and bookmark designed by parishioner Cindy Leavitt (back of church for a small donation to offset printing).
Lenten Faith Sharing Groups
Small groups for Lent begin Monday March 2. It's not too late to join with other parishioners during the six weeks of Lent, using “Journey Through Lent,” which is an E Resource book from the Pastoral Center. Each small group will discuss, pray and encourage each other as we journey through Lent. You can still sign up on the wall in the back of the church.
