Psalms: The School of Prayer

At the heart of the Bible are the Psalms, prayers from God that help us learn to pray. The Holy Spirit inspired them. Israel sang them. Christ himself prayed them, as did our Blessed Mother. These sacred hymns become our heartfelt response to God’s loving and wondrous deeds for us. Their words captivate the imagination and draw us into a deeply personal encounter with God.

Join Jeff Cavins, Sarah Christmyer, and Dr. Tim Gray as they show you how to establish a deeply personal dialogue with God through the Psalms.

Join us for Psalms: The School of Prayer beginning
September 21st at 7:00 – 8:30 pm and continuing every Monday for 11 weeks, OR
September 22nd at 9:30 – 11:00 am and continuing every Tuesday for 11 weeks

Called & Gifted

Forming Intentional Disciples: Called & Gifted

The Called & Gifted™ Discernment Process is a program developed by the Catherine of Siena Institute in 1993. Called & Gifted is a three-part discernment process intended to help ordinary lay Catholics in the average parish discern their charisms. Charisms, or spiritual gifts, are special abilities given to all baptized Christians by the Holy Spirit to give them the power both to represent Christ and to be a channel of God’s goodness for people (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, 798-801). The Called & Gifted process presumes no knowledge of the gifts or background in discernment.

These are times of immense challenge and immense opportunity for the Catholic Church. If the Church is to reverse these trends, the evangelizers must first be evangelized; in other words, Catholics in the pew must make a conscious choice to know and follow Jesus before they can draw others to him. This work of discipleship lies at the heart of Forming Intentional Disciples, a program designed to help church leaders, parish staff and all Catholics transform parish life from within.

Vision:  Create disciples of Christ in our parish.

Mission:  Increase adult prayer, Catholic knowledge and parish involvement by providing activities and events where parishioners can encounter Jesus Christ.

Join: Be a part of the “Called and Gifted”. The next workshop begins on Saturday, September 19 at 9:00 am - 11am in Kohler Hall. The classes will take place on September 19 and 26, October 3, 10, 17,  2015. Contact Fr. Cory or the parish office by Sept 8th to sign-up. Materials are $25.

Help us fulfill the mission of St. Jude: We, the faith community of St. Jude of the Lake, empowered by the Holy Spirit, are called to love God and one another by proclaiming God’s Word, celebrating in prayer and sacrament, and ministering to others through Jesus Christ and the teaching of the Catholic Church.

Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
