Saint Jude Church is centered on Christ present in the Eucharist. Our parishioners are always encouraged to fully participate at Mass by preparing themselves to receive Christ in both the Precious Body and Blood and to carry Christ into the world through lives that reflect his presence in their actions.
First Communion is a milestone in a child’s journey toward full initiation into the Body of Christ. This sacrament allows our children to experience the wonder and mystery of entering into a Holy Communion with God. As a norm we schedule the first reception of this sacrament during our regular parish weekend Masses so that all can be a part of this celebration. Arrangements to prepare for this sacrament are made through the Religious Education (PREP) Office.
