When is our SERVE-A-THON?

Our SERVE-A-THON will take place on Thursday, October 29, 2020. We will kick-off on Friday, September 25, 2020!
 

How does SERVE-A-THON work?

SERVE-A-THON is our only FUNdraising effort. During October, the students will be engaging in a “Random Acts Of Service” opportunity calendar. On the day of the event, it will be a banner day! We will be sharing blessings throughout our campus. 
 
What will the students be doing during the SERVE-A-THON?
In addition to the school-wide FUNdraising donation efforts and our on-going service project, The Blessing Box, our Pengwinners will be participating in “Random Acts Of Service” opportunity calendar. Some of the activities include; picking up trash in the community, donating a food item and helping sort for the Mahtomedi Food Shelf, making prayer cards, writing letters to our troops, collecting socks for the homeless, and making our Blessing Bags. Please click the yellow buttons for more info.
 

Do we have a FUNdraising goal for SERVE-A-THON?

We would love to raise $10,000. Please keep in mind that donations can be made online, in person, or through the mail. Payments of cash, check, charge, or stock are welcome. To donate now click the button below.
 

What does the money go to for SERVE-A-THON?

The money will go toward tuition assistance and items on the school wish list. This year we are working towards something special: 3 picnic tables to put out by our playground!

Jesus said to them, “This kind can only come out through prayer and fasting.” Mark 9:29.
 
Given the turmoil, confusion, and spiritual battle of the current times, we have started a Fasting practice at St. Jude’s!  On Tuesday, October 20 at 6:30 pm, Father Chad will talk about Fasting and different ways to Fast.
 
If you are interested to try Fasting, we have a free “Starter Kit”:
– Fasting Prayer card laminated
– Fasting Rosary
– Wed/Fri weekly emails for fasting that you can sign up to receive.
 
Our Blessed Mother in Medjugorje (1981-current, www.medjugorje.com), has asked us to fast on bread and water, Wednesdays & Fridays.  We have a special fasting bread made by The Grateful Table and parishioner/owner, Mary Robideaux.
 
 For those who want to try a Bread and Water Fast, you will receive a book when ordering your first loaf!
