Reconciliation

Reconciliation is available on Saturday evenings from 3:30 until 4:30 PM in the church or you can call 651-426-3245 to schedule an individual appointment.

Second grade children celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation in November. We ask that children celebrate this sacrament prior to the reception of First Eucharist. First Reconciliation is celebrated in communal services with individual confessions. If possible, please assist your child in learning the Act of Contrition. Show your child the value you place on this sacrament by having them accompany you when you celebrate Reconciliation.

 

Eucharist

"I am the Bread of Life."

If your child is in second grade or older and has not yet received his/her First Eucharist please fill out the form below.

Children must be members of St.Jude of the Lake and either be registered in Faith Formation or St. Jude of the Lake School for the year preceding their First Eucharist. To register for Faith Formation click here.

 


Confirmation

"Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit."

Confirmation preparation at St. Jude of the Lake is a two year program that begins in 9th grade. For questions, contact Laura Stierman.

Anointing of the Sick

The Anointing of the Sick is for those persons close to death, and also for any of the baptized faithful whose health is seriously impaired by sickness, weakened by old age, or readying for surgery for a serious illness. Therefore, the anointing should not be postponed until a person is near death, but should take place at a time that allows the sick person and their loved ones to participate in the sacrament. Please contact the parish office at 651-426-3245 to schedule a celebration of the sacrament. In an emergency, please call Mary Kaufhold 651-777-1042.

 

Marriage

Marriage is one of the most important commitments a person can make. The Catholic Church requires marriage preparation to help a couple understand and prepare for this commitment. The preparation process at St. Jude of the Lake is designed to help the couple build a solid foundation for a life-long covenant of love.

The preparation process begins at least six months prior to the proposed date of the wedding. Please contact Fr. Cory Rohlfing at 651-426-3245 or frcory@stjudeofthelake.org to schedule your first initial meeting. Please do not make any other arrangements until a wedding date has been approved by the parish.

Either the bride or the groom or their parents must be registered and active members of the parish in order to celebrate a wedding in the parish. An active parishioner is one who participates regularly in the Sunday Eucharist and shares his/her time, talent and treasure with the parish community.
