My Dear Friends in Christ,
Welcome to the St. Jude the Apostle Parish website. We hope that you will find it helpful in getting to know our parish. Our parish is a result of the 2007 merger of the parishes St. Vincent de Paul, St. John the Evangelist and Sacred Heart. Since that merger, we have continued to grow in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are blessed in our growth in new members and parish ministries. This website will help you become familiar with our parish and who to call for whatever information you may need.
Newcomers are always welcome and we look forward to you taking an active part in the life of our parish.
This website will help you stay current with upcoming events and activities through our weekly bulletin and parish calendar. We have an abundance of ministries that should afford everyone an opportunity to get involved and to get to know your fellow parishioners. Our strength as a parish community comes through our worshiping together and participating in the ministries and activities our parish offers.
Enjoy browsing over this site and let us know if there is any way we can help you. May God bless you and help us grow together in his peace and love.
In Christ’s Peace,
Rev. Mathew J. Simonar

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
