On July 1, 2014 the parishes of St John the Evangelist, St Joseph and St Norbert merged and formed the new faith community of St Jude Thaddeus Parish. All are welcome in this place to live their baptismal promise, worship together in community and serve the Lord.
A Step Along the Way
It helps now and then to step back and take a long view. The Kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is beyond our vision.
We accomplish in our lifetime only a fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God’s work. Nothing we do is complete, which is another way of saying that the kingdom always lies beyond us. No statement says all that could be said. No prayer fully expresses our faith. No confession brings perfection, no pastoral visit brings wholeness. No program accomplishes the Church’s mission.No set of goals and objectives includes everything.
This is what we are about. We plant the seeds that one day will grow. We water the seeds already planted knowing that they hold future promise. We lay foundations that will need further development. We provide yeast that produces effects far beyond our capabilities.
