Our parish was established on July 1, 1969 —
We are celebrating our Golden Anniversary (50 years!) in 2019!
We are a welcoming, warm parish, nestled on a hilltop in south Eugene at the top of Willamette Street. We can easily claim the best view of any church in town, as our sanctuary, enclosed on three sides by full length glass panels, faces south, looking out over the South hills of Eugene and directly at Spencer Butte, beautifully set off by our rock garden and our 10’ tall risen Christ. 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!
ST. JUDE PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
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
HARD OF HEARING?
Are you hard of hearing? Both St. Jude's sanctuary and our parish hall are equipped with a "hearing loop", a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Never miss a word of the homily again!
