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.
November 14 at 7 pm- Martin Sheen, film star and parishioner, will talk about his journey in the Catholic faith. He will show some scenes from his recent movie "The Way" and hold a question and answer session afterwards. Bring the whole family - as I said, you won't want to miss this opportunity to hear someone both faith-filled and nationally known. Admission is free, but we are recommending a voluntary donation of $10 per family. Proceeds will be split between the Men's Club and the Loaves and Fishes ministry at St. Jude. This is a recent addition to our lineup, and supersedes the program that's been announced in the bulletin. David Shaffer will speak in January.
January 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.

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.
