… to seek and serve Christ in all persons, and love our neighbors as ourselves; by striving for justice and peace among all people, and respecting the dignity of every human being. - from the Baptismal Covenant

Explore St. Jude's Searchable Ministry Booklet for ideas on how to put your passion into action at St. Jude's.

Our Baptismal Covenant calls us to find ways to step out, to bear witness to Christ, love our neighbor, and respect the dignity of ever human being. It is a call to live out our beliefs through the choices we make.

For parishioners at St. Jude's, this call is as profound as conducting weekly bible studies at the Santa Clara County main jail, or being one with the children and community of St. Patrick’s school in Locorbe, Haiti.

It is as simple as taking time to be a part of the lives of children in San Jose who come to Santa Maria Urban Ministry to learn, study and have fun in a safe place.  It is expressed as cooking brownies, or sharing pizza with homeless veterans, or making and serving a meal at the San Jose Family Shelter.
