About Faith Formation

St. Jude’s Faith Formation is dedicated to supporting the faith journey of all our parishioners.  We are committed to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in the Catholic tradition through knowledge of the faith, Sacramental Preparation,  liturgical celebrations, prayer, involvement in parish life and outreach.  We provide formal education for youth until they are confirmed as well as a range of opportunities for adults in order to support the lifelong process of growing closer to God.

Becoming Catholic – Take the first step…Every Tuesday from 7-8 p.m. in the parish library we host an evening to answer questions you may have about becoming Catholic.  If you know someone interested in becoming Catholic, please invite them or better yet, bring them, to the Faith Formation office on the first Tuesday of the month.  It is a great opportunity to begin inquiring into the journey of becoming Catholic.  It is a great no-pressure opportunity to find out about the Catholic faith.  For more information contact frjim@saintjudetheapostle.org or the faith formation office cindy@saintjudetheapostle.org
