St. Jude’s is situated on three acres of land at the corner of Stelling and McClellan Roads in Cupertino. We have just completed a beautiful renovation of our central courtyard, the culmination of a 5-year process that began with a vision for a campus Master Plan. Our goals, embodied in this renovation, were to create an inviting campus with places to find spiritual connections and areas for intergenerational fellowship in large and small gatherings.
The outer corner of our campus is dedicated to maintaining a beautiful apricot orchard, a tribute to our area’s agricultural past. Along the side roads, we’ve developed lighted parking lots, with attractive landscaping and paved paths leading into our buildings and central courtyard.
On one end of the central courtyard is our church and parish hall. We have a memorial garden behind our church, and have plans for a meditation walk behind our parish hall, which will continue around the campus. On the other end of the central courtyard are two classroom wings with a gated, landscaped courtyard and playground, and the original farmhouse, which is used for offices. Our campus is lively throughout the week with a wide array of parish activities and the good works of on-campus programs.
Our new courtyard includes a paved patio under 6 shade trees, a water feature surrounded by circular seating, a labyrinth, and gardens and grass areas for enjoying a respite from the busy world around. We hope that this layout of inviting spaces will not only meet the needs of our parish, but become an inviting spiritual oasis for our local community.
St Jude's church is always open for prayer and reflection.
Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here.
