All Mass intentions for this special time have been carried over to Sacred Heart. WEEKEND MASS TIMES REMAIN THE SAME AT ST. JUDE BUT MASS WILL BE CELEBRATED IN THE KELLER ROOM.

id000128Mr. Schulz recently informed our principal, Steve Donndelinger, that he has finally made the decision to retire after 52 years in the teaching profession with over 22 years at St. Jude. His decision was made after considerable reflection and Steve honored his request not to share this information until the conclusion of the school year. Being the humble person that he always is, Mr. Schulz wished to avoid much of the public acknowledgment and celebration that often comes with such an event.

Room by Emma DonoghueRoom by Emma Donoghue
To five-year-old-Jack, Room is the world. . . . It's where he was born, it's where he and his Ma eat and sleep and play and learn. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma it's the prison where she has been held for seven years. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in this eleven-by-eleven-foot space.

Wild at Heart by Tessa BieleckiHave you felt incomplete in your spiritual life? Do the routine recitations of prayer to God seem dry, at times, leaving you feeling empty and alone? Do you experience a trial of faith in the midst of trying times or under pressures to follow the majority? To have a living faith today, you must at some point in your life experience a deep mystical relationship with God.
