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 chair), Bishop Michael Duca, presiding; Spaghetti Dinner served immediately afterward Games Day on the Grounds Kid’s Corner (games and activities) FR, Oct 16th 6:30 pm: “Patio Dancin’” and (food) in St. Jude “Front Yard”.

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.
