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.
January 9, 2018 guest speaker is David Shaffer, M.Div., a marriage and family therapist will Stillpoint Family Resources. He will speak on the Importance of Creating Silence.
April 27-29, 2018 Our yearly Men’s Retreat will take place the weekend of April 27-29 at Serra Retreat Center in Malibu. The theme of the retreat is “Our Search for Meaning”. The retreat begins with dinner on Friday evening and ends with lunch on Sunday. It includes plenty of time for relaxation, prayer, Mass, talks by Fr. Michael Doherty and Sr. Carol Quinlivan to guide your reflecting, and getting to know other men from St. Jude and other parishes. The grounds are beautiful, the food is excellent, and the company is pretty good, too. For more information contact Chris Tolcher via email at: email@example.com, or by phone: 818-421-4893.

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.
