St. Jude Catholic Parish - South Bend, Indiana

From the Pastor - August 13, 2017

Trevis Young, our new Director of Music and Liturgy, comes to us from Clemson, SC. He has spent the past five years there as Director of Music for Clemson United Methodist Church as well as accompanist for the Department of Performing Arts at Clemson University. Trevis began studying piano in the first grade and added the study of the organ when he was a sophomore in high school. He has been involved in choral activities for church and school since childhood, and he began serving the church professionally in 2006. His first position was as organist in the Episcopal Church in his hometown of Mason City, Iowa (also the hometown of Meredith Wilson, composer of The Music Man).

Learning About the Catholic Faith

All of us are called to witness and to spread the Catholic Faith handed down to us from Jesus Christ and His Apostles. This is your opportunity to Evangelize, by encouraging fallen-away Catholics or non-Catholics to “come and listen”… to come and “seek the Truth.”  Consider attending with those you might invite.  This is the time to ask those who might want to join the Church or renew their understanding. It is a great opportunity for anyone to be part of a group seeking to become truly Catholic. 

Come and See on Sunday, September 17...

100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima

On August 13, 1917, the day of the fourth apparition of Our Lady of Fatima was to take place. However, the children could not go to Cova da Iria, as they had been abducted by the mayor of Vila Nova de Ourém, who wanted to force the secret from them. The children held fast.
