Our Time to BuildDue to the generosity of so many people we have updated our "Wish List" to include items that were not on the original plans but that we still need:

Bike rack $1,000
Pews, long $2,000  |  Pews, short $1,000
Chairs (we need 80 for the cry room) $165

If you would like to sponsor part of a stained glass window, contact the Parish Office. Please talk to Mary or Fr. John for more details about any of the above.

Thank you for your support!

Our Time to BuildAs Fr. John stated in a bulletin article at the end of June, the south wall of the church (confessional wall) will have 3 niches. The middle niche will have our Patron, St. Jude. Father asked if Blessed John Paul or Mother Teresa of Calcutta would be options for the other two niches. We had two people step up to help pay for Pope John Paul II but no one had strong feelings about the other.

If you have an idea for a Saint (or Blessed) that you would want to sponsor please see Fr. John or Mary soon. We will have to make a final decision soon. One of our parishioners mentioned that it would be nice to have a North American Saint represented.

Our 'Wish List' is getting checked off. Below are the items that are still looking for sponsors:

Pews, long 2,000
Pews, short 1,000
Chairs (We need a total of 80 chairs for the cry rooms) 165

If you would like to sponsor a stained glass window, they are $25,000 for each scene. You could sponsor part of the window as some have already come forward to do. Please talk to Mary or Fr. John for more details about any of the above.

Thank you for your support!

New Stained Glass Windows
In the remodel of St. Jude Church, we are planning on the replacement of the current north window wall with stained glass windows, complete with images in three of the panels. The center window will be the Divine Mercy, Jesus with the children to the left side of center and the Holy Family for the right side of center. If there are any who wish to help with the cost of any of these and have the windows "in remembrance of" a family or parents/family members, please make contact with me or Mary Krisch as soon as possible. I think, and Bishop agreed, we would be the only parish with an image of Divine Mercy anywhere in the area. With our school and the parish's Apostolic mission to children these many years, we felt Jesus with the children would be a good choice.
