This is an invitation to share your gift of faith with others!

The primary goal of a catechist is to model God’s love to others.  As a result, the primary requisite of a catechist is a love for God and a love for children.

Catechists are asked to share their faith with the children of the parish once a week on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. from September to April. Catechists will be given training on how to use the curriculum and how to  share and promote the faith to the children of our parish.

If this is something you are interested in or if you have any questions, contact Heather Buison at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 574-291-0570.
Registration is now open for the coming RE year 2022-2023. Religious Education (RE) is for children and youth between Kindergarten to 8th grade who do not receive Catholic Christian Education and instead, attend public schools or are homeschooled. The curriculum standards and catechism lessons are set forth by the Diocese of Fort Wayne/ South Bend and are in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Religious Education is required in order to receive the sacraments of First Communion and  Confirmation so our children and youth are able to reach Christian maturity and worship our Lord in Spirit and Truth. Sacramental preparation for both First Communion and Confirmation consists of two years of catechesis. 


Registration forms can be found in the back of the church and on our website stjudeparish.net. Classes will begin on Sunday, September 11th at 11am. For more information contact Heather Buison at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. 
Heavenly Father, You entrusted Your Son Jesus, the Child of Mary,
to the care of Joseph, an earthly Father.
Bless all fathers as they care for their families. Give them strength and
wisdom, tenderness and patience; support them in the work they have to
do, protecting those who look to them, as we look to You for love and
salvation, through Jesus Christ our rock and defender, in union with the
Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.

St. Joseph, pray for all our fathers. Amen.

June 19 is Father’s Day! Spoil him with good food, yummy desserts and, of course, chocolate!!
