St. Jude's Social Justice Outreach ministry seeks to foster the parish community's commitment to social justice, encourage parish mission, recruit outreach volunteers, and direct parish funds to persons, programs and missions in greatest need.

SJO meetings are a way to learn about this ministry and contribue to parish thinking about social justice in the life of Saint Jude's. All parishioners are encouraged to become envolved. All are welcome!

These gatherings are a chance to share perspectives and ideas, to consider how best to foster activities to help us live out our baptismal convenant...

  • Opportunities for personal contributions of passion, time, and talent
  • Advocacy for those in need who cannot advocate for themselves
  • Stewardship of funds the Parish devotes to social justice and outreach

Our mission statement calls us to live as disciples of Christ.

The next meeting will be Saturday January 12, 2018 10:30AM in the Fireside Room at St. Jude's.

A tradition of seeking and advocating for social justice and outreach is synonymous with our faith.  Over the life of St. Jude's parishioners have been leaders in the Episcopal Peace Fellowship, have started missions serving farmworkers and their families, and a program to help families through elder care. In 2010 the Saint Jude's parish comunity endorsed the Charter for Compassion.

We are guided and sustained by Christ's commandment to treat our neighbors as ourselves, by our gratitude for the gift of creation, and by our realization that we are stewards of all that we possess.
