Parish Information

From the Pastor

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

Pastor

Parish Mission Statement

Our mission:

We are a community united in faith in Jesus Christ and grounded in the traditions of the Catholic Church. We embrace the continuation of Christ’s mission on earth by proclaiming the Gospel and celebrating the sacraments.

 

We at St. Jude the Apostle parish are laying the foundations for a parish built in the image of Jesus. To accept who we are today is to accept a limited edition of who God intends us to be. We can not be satisfied with who we were yesterday when we know that Jesus promised us the Glory of God tomorrow.

History

As a parish, St.Jude the Apostle was formed on July 14, 2007. Our southside parishes were merged into one new parish called St. Jude the Apostle Parish, and our members are the many people who came together from all over the city of Oshkosh. As a parish we humbly accept our short history as an opportunity to be challenged by the rich traditions of the previous parishes formed over a hundred years ago. In the presence and Spirit of St. Jude, we are blessed to live out his legacy of being a disciple of Jesus, a healing force bringing hope to many and a challenge to serve in the name of Jesus. This is our challenge and our mission for the future.
