Congratulations to our St. Jude School Forensics Speech Team, led by Christine Schrader, for bringing home a trophy from the Stanley Clark Speech Meet last Saturday, October 27.  They won 3rd place out of all other middle schools in Indiana that brought much larger teams and many more years of competitive public speaking experience!
 
■  Sam Hanson won 7th place in Impromptu and 6th place in Poetry Interpretation
■  Brendan Foley won 6th place in both Impromptu and Humorous Interpretation

St. Jude is proud to announce that we have formally been accepted into the On My Way PreK program with the State of Indiana. This is the culmination of over a year’s effort, starting with our accreditation, then working through a number of steps to qualify our staff for LLEP certification, and finally for On My Way PreK.

This weekend: Many good things happening this weekend.  Some may have already passed by the time you are reading this bulletin, but it is still worth a comment or two since so many good things are happening, between the two parishes.  Sacred Heart had their annual Craft Show this weekend.  The Women’s team for Christ Renews His Parish (now titled simply, WELCOME) is being held at Queen of Peace Parish, though with many of our own members involved.  The two parishes are sharing the effort these past two years in order to keep the numbers coming.  

Come join us for our Parish Mission! Jim Murphy is giving a lively reflection on how Jesus can help us in the darkest of times, and how we can bring the Light of Christ to others.

Our Official 70th Anniversary Celebration will take place on the Feast Day of St. Jude, Sunday, October 28 in the Keller Room from 5 to 7 in the evening. The band Second Wind will provide dinner music as well as dancing after dinner. Our own Abe Rusch and his fiancée Emily Dodd will also be providing entertainment. It will be fun for the whole family!

Thank you to all parishioners who have completed and submitted your Commitment Card to the church. For those parishioners who have not yet had the opportunity to submit their card, a letter will be mailed to you with a personalized Commitment Card. It is important that all parishioners complete a Commitment Card as we will be mailing out a Summary Report of the program and need all commitments accounted for in this report.
