Sacraments of Initiation at Easter Vigil

Congratulations to the following individuals who received the Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil Saturday night: Those Celebrating Full Christian Initiation: Alexandra Hudson,  Yen Cao Ly,  Ava Williams,  and Eric Williams. Christians Celebrating Full Communion with the Catholic Church: Maggie Gresiak.   They are now officially called neophytes (which is a word meaning twig, as in a new sprout on a branch).  They now enter a period called, mystagogyThis is the final period of the RCIA.  In fact, the entire church community share this period with them of breaking open the infinite mysteries of God.   During this time, our neophytes will continue to meet to further reflect on the mysteries of our faith and the sacraments.  They will explore deepening their participation in the life of the St, Jude faith community and deepening into maturity that flame of faith ignited by God.  Please continue to keep them in your prayers. If you have questions or desire to explore the Catholic faith, please contact Cindy Kozal at (818) 889-0612.

Together in Mission 2021

The Together in Mission 2021 has been rescheduled to a later date in 2021 due to the coronavirus. The safety and wellness of our Catholic communities are a foremost concern. We continue to pray for those that have been impacted by the coronavirus.  Until we are fully together again in our parishes, please feel free to make your generous gift online https://ourmissionla.org/, or contact our office at 213-637-7407

Loaves & Fishes Upcoming Collections

Food and Recycling Collections: the third Saturday of January-May from 9am-10am. LOAVES AND FISHES has adapted to the current pandemic with drive-thru events.  It’s an exciting chance to see others in the line of cars and a great way to help those in need.  Food insecurity doubled in the months since the pandemic began, so the local needs are great.

You are invited to drive through St. Jude’s parking lot as many third Saturdays as you can January through May to drop off a bag(s) of food AND your aluminum cans and plastic drink bottles with a CRV separated into bags for recycling.  If possible, crushing the bottles and cans ahead of time is very helpful.

Questions? Want to donate but are unable to drop off?  Want to volunteer in the parking lot? Have a truck for delivery?  Please contact John or Jackie Treuting at 805-495-4630.  Not getting out to shop?  A check to LOAVES AND FISHES is welcome and can be dropped off in line or mailed to the church or me. 

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS.                      

DRIVE THROUGH COMMUNION SUNDAYS AT 1PM

DRIVE THROUGH COMMUNION is now offiered on Sundays at 1:00 p.m. Enter in the 2nd driveway on Foxfield (closest to the school) and follow the directions/cones. You will pull through and exit onto Lindero Canyon. Fr. Jim will be greeting each car as you pull through to the Eucharistic Ministers. If you watch Mass that morning or read through the scriptures with your family, drive on through to receive Communion.

WARNING: Fake Emails

We received reports this past week of emails sent from a spammer impersonating a Gmail account of our pastor, Fr. Jim. The subject of the email was typically GOD BLESS YOU and they requested a reply (often times, it was a request of a gift card, such as iTunes). If you receive this email, please do not respond. This is an example of the tactics used by spammers to receive money or personal information from you.
This particular spoofing email scam seems to be targeting Catholic parishes and dioceses throughout the United States for the past several months. Other dioceses have reported that the emails are sent repeatedly every few weeks or months.
