 St. Jude Liturgy COVID Protocols

We have good news that Covid is receding and it is safer to get about.  Because of this and the longing to really pray with each other, we are adapting our seating in church.  While we have retained the back section and side chapels for masked people only, the front of the main section of church is now available for the use of every pew and masks are optional.


Our monthly food pantry collections are for the House of Peace and Tosa Food Pantry.  Non-perishable items may be placed in the collection baskets located near the south entrance of the church.  Please, no expired items.  Our boxes for monetary donations will be located on the communion rails at the Masses on the first weekend of each month.

New Hymnal Sponsorship
     The new hymnals are Gather IV and contain a broader variety of music, yet classic music as well.  The goal is to hand out a half sheet of paper each week for supplemental purposes with Mass parts in the inside cover and throughout the new hymnal.
     The cost per hymnal will be $25 so we are looking for sponsorship of these new hymnals.  A sticker will be placed inside each copy so we are able to name who is being memorialized in the hymnals.  There will be one name per hymnal.
You can be a part of this by:
Clicking the Online Giving header on this page, then the Home tab, and New Hymnal Fund
Or by sending a check (with “hymnal” on memo line) for the number of hymnals you wish to sponsor ($25, $50, $75, $100 . . .) and name/s of a person/s you wish us to remember. You can place an envelope with this in the collection or send it to the parish office.
