"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."

February 27-28, 2021

Dear St. Jude Family,

A blessed 2nd Sunday of Lent! Last week, we received the ashes on our heads as the beginning of Lent. It is symbolic for us Catholics because it reminds us of two essential things; first, our whole life begins and ends with God, and second, sin is a stain in our relationship with God and hinders us in becoming what God wants us to be. In other words, this holy Lent must lead us to repentance, which is being aware of the grave consequences of sins and be truly contrite for them. Our journey to conversion and repentance this Lent would even be more meaningful and fulfilling if our resolve is rooted in our love for Jesus and his cross. The death of Jesus on the cross is the deepest meaning and profoundest expression of God’s unconditional love for us par excellence.
 
This holy season of Lent, it is crucially important for us to contemplate on our personal relationship with God and one another, listen to God’s voice, discern His will for us and ultimately to travel the path of Christ.
 
I have been so desirous of meeting each of you in person and forming a personal relationship with you. Speaking of relationship, I would like to share a little bit of myself, so that although we are remotely connected only via live streaming Mass, you can still get to know me as your pastor. I was raised by a single mother who was widowed when she was four-months pregnant with me. This is the reason why I have a special bond, connection, and love for all mothers and women. Also, I enjoy community-building programs and events, where I can get to know people more deeply and make a personal relationship with them. I get a deeper appreciation for the ethnic diversity and unique cultural gifts of our parish. This is why I celebrate different festivals and festivities in the parish. In my previous parish, I had four grand festivals a  year, embracing all cultural ethnicities and traditions. In addition, I enjoy visiting the sick and praying for the ill, because it reminds me of my mother who has been fighting brain cancer and heart failure for six years now. This explains why I have special care for parishioners, who are mostly at risk during this pandemic by observing health guidelines, wearing a mask and sanitizing the space in the church. Lastly, as a priest, I have a deep appreciation for those who volunteer to serve the church’s needs. For me, having people who serve at church as extensions of the priest’s hands and feet is a precious gift. This is why I have a special affection for our parish volunteers. Had there been no pandemic, I would have organized a great festivity, honoring all our parish volunteers as I always did in the past.
 
This Lent, I earnestly pray that the good Lord will give you all the necessary graces that you may experience the forgiveness and love of God in the most personal way. I look forward to getting to know you all. Please know that I am here for you.

Praying for you all,
Fr. Pao


St. Jude's Catholic Church in Eugene OR welcomes people of all ages and stages:

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 50 PERSONS - SIGN UP REQUIRED)
  • Sun. 9:00A and 11:30A (LIMITED TO 50 PERSONS - SIGNUP REQUIRED)
  • Tue. 12:30P (LIMITED TO 50 PERSONS - SIGN UP REQUIRED)
  • W-F.  9:00A (LIMITED TO 50 PERSONS - 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 80 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.
