christmas scripHaving trouble getting the right Christmas gift? Why not order Scrip gift cards as a present or even use Scrip to purchase the gifts!!  Scrip is the easiest fundraiser! Scrip is gift certificates or cards to restaurants and stores. You buy the gift card at face value and it is worth the same face value. St. Jude makes it profit by buying the gift certificates in bulk and at a discounted rate. There are over 500 local and national vendors. To view a complete list, go to .

We have lots to be thankful for~ even during this COVID pandemic. As Fr. Solanus said “Thank God ahead of time!”
Advent Giving


It is that time of year again! We have adopted 10 families through St. Vincent de Paul Society for Christmas but because of COVID it will look a little different this year. First of all you will not see an actual Christmas Tree. We are asking parishioners to make monetary contributions. Place your donation in an envelope marked SVdP Christmas and drop it in the collection basket or mail it to the parish.  Volunteer 'shoppers' will use that money to shop for an entire family. Presents will be wrapped and then delivered to the families the Saturday before Christmas.

We need ten shoppers ~ shoppers will be given money to shop, ten present wrappers and ten delivery teams. You can volunteer to do all three for a family or just one thing. Call John or Mary Krisch at 291-3463 if you would like to volunteer or if you have any questions.
Wings Etc. Grill and Pub South Bend is donating 15% of all pre-tax food and soft drink sales on Tuesday & Wednesday, November 24-25 to St. Jude School!

Flyers with more information available soon!
Make a contribution to the Scholarship Granting Organization of Northeast (SGONEI) and receive a 50% credit (refund) against your State of Indiana taxes!

Believe it or not, it's that time of year again to start thinking about "Adopt a Family" through the St. Vincent de Paul Society for Christmas! Like last year, the St. Jude Parish Conference will be adopting 10 families but because of COVID it will be a little bit different.  We will need shoppers, present wrappers and delivery teams. You can take one family and do it all or you can just volunteer for one part of the process. We, of course, will need monetary donations and it is not too early to start donating. Just write "SVdP Christmas" on an envelope with your donation and drop it in the collection basket.

John and Mary Krisch are heading up the program this year and can be reached at 291-3463 if you have any questions. Keep an eye on the bulletin for additional information.
