St. Jude Men's Club is the central gathering point for all men of the St. Jude Catholic Community. We promote men's fellowship while pursing our common goal of being men of faith and service to our Church and community.
Men's Club advances the fellowship of the men of St. Jude Catholic Community by providing opportunities for:
- community building within the parish
- service to our Church, school, and local community
- growing in the knowledge and practice of our Catholic faith
- supporting each other as faithful Catholic men
Men's Club meets on the second Tuesday night of the month in the parish hall. Meetings include time for socializing, and update on club events and service opportunities, and a segment called "Basic Training for Catholic Men"--a presentation on some aspect of Catholicism that we have to know in order to better understand our faith. Meetings typically include a guest speaker or a video presentation by popular Catholic speakers.
NEXT MEETING: Men’s Club will be holding our next meeting on Tuesday, June 12, from 7-9 PM in the parish hall. Guest speaker will be Todd Lipka, President of Step Up on Second and author of “Creating Affordable Housing for Individuals with Mental Illness, A Step by Step Guide”. His organization works to provide housing and other support services to people with mental illness, especially those that are homeless. He will discuss his organization’s efforts to help this very vulnerable population. We will also hear from Tim Schutz and Frank Blum from “Habitat to the Max” will discuss their joint efforts with Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County to share their dream of building affordable homes for low-income families in need of safe, decent housing.

Recommended reading: “Step into The Breach”, an online article by Bishop Thomas Olmsted of the Diocese of Phoenix. It is a spiritual call to arms for Catholic men to step into the breach of those walking away from our faith. It is great motivational reading.
