NEW Prayer Opportunity

St. Jude Family in Christ,
Fr. Cory has encourages us to increase our prayer in order to become a parish of prayer.  We are also continuing to develop our Vision: "To be a place of healing and raising up champions for Christ." With these two initiatives in mind, we've began a monthly St. Jude Healing Novena. The monthly novena will begin on the 20th of each month and ends on the 28th of each month. This Healing Novena will be delivered daily to your inbox through an "Opt In"  request. If you would like to pray for those who need healing, we encourage you to click on the link below.

Reasons for healing may take many forms; injury, illness, cancer, divorce, death/widowed, depression, drugs, surgeries, etc. Prayer requests will be taken online in two ways: (1) You may submit your own name and reason for healing; or (2) After receiving permission, you may submit the name of another person and reason for healing.

Our patron saint, St. Jude, is known as the saint of Lost Causes and Hope. He was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and his Feast Day is October 28th. Many miracles have been attributed to the intercession of St. Jude to our Lord, Jesus Christ.
