  • Board of Limited Jurisdiction Announcement from Msgr. Beach View

    St. Jude Parish

    321 West Butler Avenue, Chalfont, PA 18914

    October 14, 2016
    Dear Parishioners and School parents/guardians:

    Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, stated, when discussing Catholic Education:
    "When we all come together to educate our children, we will be one step closer to creating a World of good.... We provide the values and support that can help people, especially young people, develop concern for the poor and for justice, and to contribute to the common good.”

    St. Jude Parish remains committed to these ideals, recognizing the criticality of parochial Schools to not only parish life but to the world at large. As St. Jude parishioners, you have no doubt witnessed the treasure that our school is and the gift that it is for our community. We are extremely blessed and equally proud to have a Parish school that educates, nurtures and develops our students both spiritually and educationally, St. Jude School Continues to remain a vibrant, award-winning, faith-based School. As such, we are very excited to share some wonderful news regarding actions our parish will be taking to further support and strengthen our Parish school.

    As you know, over the past 5 years, many parochial Catholic schools have had to close or have been consolidated. As a result, the pastors and principals of Bucks County formed the Bucks County Education Advisory Council to determine what proactive actions can be taken to assist our parish Schools. The Board analyzed the many challenges facing area Catholic education such as declining birth rates and changing demographics.

    As a result, in collaboration with the Office of Catholic Education, the Board strongly recommended that all parish elementary schools form a "Board of Limited Jurisdiction" for the future sustainability of our schools. The primary goal of this Board is to invite parishioners and those Committed to Catholic education to become more involved in the planning and support of our parish elementary Schools.

    As such, our schools will benefit from greater lay involvement and ownership. This will not diminish the ultimate responsibility and authority of the Pastor, in collaboration with the Principal, for the success of our Schools.

    The role of a Board of Limited Jurisdiction includes setting non-curriculum policy for the school and is responsible to develop a strategic plan for the future of the school, including:

    • Institutional Advancement, which includes development, recruitment, retention, marketing/communications, strategic planning, alumni/ae relations. 
    • Financial oversight, which includes budgets, tuition, financial aid, annual giving and endowments,

    Over the past six months, we have reviewed this recommendation with our Parish Leadership Committee, Finance Council and Pastoral Council, who have been unanimous in their support.

    We are pleased to announce that we have formed a Steering Committee to establish a Board of Limited Jurisdiction for St. Jude School. The members of the Steering Committee include: Monsignor Francis Beach, Sister Elizabeth, Deacon Tim and members of the St. Jude community: Mrs. Kathy Fuehr, Mrs. Kathy O'Neill, and Mr. Ed Wild.

    We anticipate that the Board will be operational in early 2017.
    Please keep us in your prayers as we continue in our efforts.
    Sincerely yours in Christ,
    Monsignor Francis W. Beach,                Sister Elizabeth Marley, R.S.M.
