Sons of Italy. Prizes and refreshments.
From Feast Day to Feast Month
The St. Jude Ladies Guild truly fulfills its mantra at the
annual Feast Day celebration: “All Ladies of the Parish
are members of Ladies Guild.” Somehow from the
beginning the celebration has carried the “seal of
approval” and stalwart leadership of that group at its
head. Even though many folk have labored in addition to
the members of the Guild, it is they who have provided
the initiative, the inspiration and the shape of the event
year after year. We “lesser mortals” of St. Jude salute
and bless you, Ladies’ Guild, for this remarkable
ongoing service to our beloved church!
This year, no less than in the past, the Guild has been
busily planning, recruiting and leading the charge toward
a wonderful day. There is one difference this year: it’s
our 45th Anniversary as a parish! That calls for special
celebration. So several others have jumped in to surround
the gala Feast day with an Octoberfest of activity,
leading up to the actual “Feast Day of Sts. Simon and
Jude” Wednesday October 28th, on which we will hold a
special memorial Mass for all deceased members of the
parish over the 45 years of its presence.
October will be punctuated with special celebrations,
large and small, in our parish, each with intent of
“Remembering the Connection,” as the title of our
Speaker Series marks. We invite parishioners to celebrate
as often as possible a month of joy and hope as we
cherish the past and celebrate the future.
Here is the schedule of events. Please cut it out and
retain it somewhere close at hand, so as not to
…….forget:
SA, October 3rd at 10am: Blessing of the Animals in the
St. Jude Courtyard, to mark the memorial of St Francis of
Assisi, everyone’s “favorite saint.”
SU, October 4th at 10am: Gala Feast Day Liturgy on
the Grounds amid the Trees (bring a comfortable

SU, Oct 18th 7pm: Msgr. Ronald Hoppe of Alexandria,
Pastor St. Jude from 1973 to 1983, 2nd speaker in the
“Remember the Connection” series. A wonderful,
Spirit-filled, joyful priest. Come and be warmed and
regaled by him.
SU, Oct 25th, 3pm: The Carlow Choir of Alexandria,
150 voices and a visitor to Carnegie Hall and en route to
a tour of Ireland in 2010, will present a concert of sacred
favorites.

Respect Life Sunday
October 4, 2009
The reciprocal love between the Father and the Son is so great that a third Person results from it: the Holy Spirit. By analogy, when husband and wife are united in love, they are able to produce a third person: a child, a fruit of their love. The conception of a child is a reflection of the Holy Trinity, of God himself. “What God has joined together, no human being must separate.” (Mk 10:9) No human being has the authority to separate husband from wife, nor procreation from marriage. Blessing of the Pets
Saturday, October 3rd at 10am we will have the
Blessing of the Pets in the St. Jude Courtyard. To
mark the memorial of
St. Francis of Assisi,
everyone’s “Favorite
saint.” Please make
sure you have your
pet
adequately
restrained.
