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.
For more information or to get your name added to the Club's roster and email communications, email Chris Tolcher or (818)421-4893.
Coming Event: The St. Jude’s Men's Club is happy to host the second annual Catholic Night at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 6:10 pm when the first-place Dodgers play division-rival Colorado Rockies. The event is open to everyone in the Parish, as well as friends and family. We have reserved bus transportation (with onboard restrooms) that will leave the church parking lot at 4 p.m. Tickets are available for $50 (Preferred Reserve section) per person for those wishing to take the bus and $25 each for those making their own transportation arrangements. If you wish to join our group, please send an e-mail by Aug. 15 to SJMC Treasurer Terry Francisco at firstname.lastname@example.org with an estimated size of your group.

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.
