Our community is excited to participate alongside all parishes, missions and Catholic centers in the Archdiocese to strengthen and renew our Church for the future. Please continue reading to learn how this campaign will benefit us.
In 1970, when a handful of families sacrificed to establish St. Jude the Apostle Parish, they also blessed us with a legacy to build upon and celebrate.
Through God’s grace, we have grown from a small faith community into a welcoming parish for hundreds of families. We have created a vibrant, active, and dynamic place for people of all ages to grow in their faith, serve others, and share the Good News as they connect with Christ, one another, and those in need.
We are now launching the Called to Renew campaign alongside every parish in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and ask God to bless this ambitious effort. Our campaign will allow us to address the needs of parishioners and St. Jude the Apostle, ensuring future generations may continue to gather, worship, and create lasting friendships.
The goal for our campaign is $1,450,000, of which 50 percent will remain at our parish to address the needs detailed on the following page. We will also retain 100 percent of the funds we collect over our goal.
I am asking you, and every member of our parish, to make a gift from the heart. In turn, I, as your pastor and fellow parishioner, will also make a sacrificial pledge. Before you determine your pledge, please prayerfully consider the generosity God has shown you, and the importance of the mission we have been given at St. Jude the Apostle.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
Our parish hall, which is central to parish activities and ministries, is showing its age. Upgrading the restrooms will ensure they are accessible to all and installing new windows and doors will make this important gathering space more welcoming.
Installing solar panels on a section of the roof will reduce electrical costs as well as our impact on the environment.
The landscaping is the first impression visitors and parishioners have of our parish. Replacing a portion of the greenery with drought-tolerant plants will beautify our campus while making it more water efficient.
