"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."

October 17-18

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,
Fr. Pao


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/

COVID-19 Pandemic - Re-Opening of Masses

We are so happy to share the news that Masses have begun again, on a limited basis. Fr. Pao will be our celebrant for all Masses.  
 
Our schedule remains:
  • Sat. 5:00P (LIMITED TO 40 - SIGN UP REQUIRED)
  • Sun. 9:00A and 11:30A (LIMITED TO 40 - SIGNUP REQUIRED)
  • Tue. 12:30P (LIMITED TO 40 - SIGN UP REQUIRED)
  • W-F.  9:00A (LIMITED TO 40 - SIGN UP REQUIRED)

Click "Register Here" below to sign up for mass.

   

There are many protocols we must follow to keep everyone safe and adhere to official regulations. You can find the detailed by clicking here: “Reopening Guidelines to Parishioners”.
 
We are limited (to conform with state guidelines) to a congregation of just 40 people per Mass. This means that not everyone who wants to come at a particular time or even every week will be able to. Individuals and families will have to register for Mass which can be done online (see the sign up link above) or by calling the office. Space is on a first come, first serve basis, and we ask that you reserve only one Mass time each week.  The link to each week's sign-ups will be in the weekly Mass announcement from Flocknote or is accessible from this site (see link just above).
 
Congregants are asked to be at church 15 minutes before start time and will be checked off on arrival. Doors will be locked when Mass starts and no one will be admitted after that time. No one can attend Mass who has not registered.
 
The archdiocese reminds us that dispensation of our normal Sunday Mass obligation continues through the end of this year. Those over 60 are urged to be particularly careful, and, if you are ill, don't even think about attending. Likewise, our communion obligation is to receive only once per year.
 
We began live streaming one of our weekend masses on Facebook in August. Visit our Facebook page (click link at left) and scroll down to "Videos" to see the latest mass recording.
