God has called and gifted you for a mission. When you were baptized, you were given the presence of the Holy Spirit and charisms, gifts of the Holy Spirit that enable you to be a channel of God's love, truth, beauty, mercy, healing, and provision for others. The charisms that you have been given are important clues to your God-given mission in life and Holy Spirit empowered tools to enable you to live it.

St Jude 8th Grade is having a Nelson’s Port-A-Pit chicken fundraiser this Friday, May 3, at Community Wide Federal Credit Union on Ireland Road. The sale goes from 3:20 until 6:30 or until we sell out. This fundraiser helps pay for the 8th grade retreat in October and the Chicago field trip in May.

Please join us at 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, May 8 to tour the Christ Child Society clothing center (located at 308 South Scott Street – the former St. Patrick’s School in South Bend)! As you enjoy beverages and light snacks, you will learn what the Christ Child Society is and how you may participate in rewarding volunteer activities, ranging from direct service to the children of our community, fund-raising projects, spiritual support, and social opportunities.

We will have the traditional May Crowning of Mary on Wednesday, May 8 at 2:15 in the church.

You are ALL invited to celebrate this event!
The World Day of Prayer for Vocations is Sunday, May 12, also known as "Good Shepherd Sunday." The purpose of this day is to publicly fulfill the Lord's instruction to, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). Please pray that young men and women hear and respond generously to the Lord's call to the priesthood, diaconate, religious life, societies of apostolic life or secular institutes. You can find many resources to promote a culture of vocations on the USCCB Vocations webpage.
