It is the privilege of each woman in the parish to belong to Altar Society. In order to promote a Christian family spirit, Altar Society sponsors and promotes several events throughout the year. Funds generated from activities are used for various parish needs; altar breads and wine, Christmas fowers and candles, etc. As funds permit donations are made for various items not covered by the parish budget. This is, in part, our way of striving to meet the mission of St. Jude Parish.
Funeral dinners provide an excellent opportunity to express sympathy, sorrow, and concern to the family of the deceased. In providing this service, we eliminate the burden this would place on the family. We allow them to better deal with their grief by having the support of friends around them, without the worries involved in preparing a large meal. Volunteers are needed to provide food and to help serve.
