Whether you are familiar with church life, or have no experience of any church, whether you are a lifelong Episcopalian or have no belief at all, whoever you are and wherever you are in your journey of faith, there is a place for you at St. Jude’s. This website has been designed to give you a sense of the community, liveliness, diversity, and openness you will encounter here.
If you are wondering what it might be like to come to St. Jude’s on a Sunday morning, the many pictures, the description of how we worship, and information about children, youth, hospitality, and special events will help you learn about us. You will see that most people dress informally—from work casual to shorts and sandals.
Everyone who comes to worship is greeted personally at the door, and given a worship booklet. Visitors are never singled out publicly by being asked to stand, raise a hand, remain seated, or introduce themselves.
Children are always welcome in worship. There are activity bags at the door for their use—an usher can find one for you. Childcare and Sunday School are available for infants through elementary school, if you prefer to use that option. We want you and your children to be comfortable and relaxed.
The 8:00 service lasts about 50 minutes. The 10:30 service lasts about an hour and 10 minutes. After each service refreshments are served in the parish hall or, weather permitting, on the patio. Community and friendship are what people most often name as the reason they come to St. Jude’s. I hope you will come and discover that for yourself.
Please contact me if you have questions.
Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here.
