St. Vincent de Paul Corner

In John’s Gospel Jesus gave Peter a three-fold command, following his declaration of love to Jesus three times: “feed My sheep, tend My sheep and again feed My sheep”.

In a small way, St. Jude SVdP Conference is dedicated in its mission to follow Jesus’ command. Our personal deliveries to those in need are opportunities to, in part, fulfill God’s command as we strive to provide physical sustenance and listening ears so as to offer to pray with and/or for our clients’ needs.

"I hope that the Holy Spirit will be ever more welcome in the hearts of believers and that the ‘culture of Pentecost’ which is so necessary in our day, might continue to spread." —Pope Benedict XVI, General Audience, September 28, 2005.

Fostering the culture of Pentecost, a Prayer Gathering takes place in the sanctuary of our parish from 7-8:30 p.m. on the 2nd Monday of the month. This is a time to gather together and to pray in the power of the Holy Spirit. There is no pre-requisite. If you are interested and available, please join us.

New for the Summer Months!

The Word Among Us is a monthly publication that features the daily Mass readings and meditations based on the readings. There are also inspirational essays and stories of the saints and other heroes of faith. Sacred Heart has had these booklets for a number of years and now St. Jude parishioners are being given the opportunity to see if this is something they would enjoy having. We are taking advantage of a special promotion for the summer months. Please feel free to take home a June copy of the Word among us located by all the doors of the church.
