Building for the Future Capital Campaign
St. Jude Catholic Church

As many of you know, our faith community will soon be embarking on our Building for the Future Capital Campaign.

An important aspect of this campaign involves volunteers contacting all members through a personal visit. Soon you may receive a phone call asking you to become a Visitor for the campaign. Each Visitor will be asked to simply deliver sealed envelopes, with campaign information, to approximately five households of the parish on Sunday, June 1st. The following Sunday, June 8th. Visitors will return to the same households and pick up their commitment card in a sealed security envelope. This task should only take about one hour of your time on each Sunday. Visitors will be fully trained on how to make these contacts and the best part is you will not have to ask people for money!

The success of this campaign depends on our ability to visit all members. In fact, if everyone in the parish volunteers, each person would only have to make one call! (I guarantee it would be someone you know personally.)

Baptism is celebrated monthly. You will need to make arrangements two months in advance as participation in the Baptism Program is required. Please call the parish office for additional information.

Due to the large number of weddings, you'll need to contact one of the priests six months in advance of your intended wedding date. Please feel free to call the parish office for more information.
