Saint Jude, our parish feast day

October 29, 2017

Saints Simon and Jude, apostles

Patronal Solemnity:
Saints Simon and Jude, apostles

Our parish feast in 2017 is transferred from Saturday, October 28, to the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time, October 29, so that the entire parish may observe the solemnity together. We celebrate the Mass of the apostles, but we hear the readings for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A


GOSPEL VIDEO: Mathew 22: 34-40

Pray the Scriptures for this day. Click HERE for a video reflection on the readings, then scroll down and click on October 29. Experience lectio divina, prayerful reflective reading of today’s Gospel.

Prepare families or groups for these readings. Learn more about this Sunday. Find explanations and images of the readings. How do we picture the Twelve Apostles and their deaths?


These are the holy men
whom the Lord chose in his own perfect love;
to them he gave eternal glory.


♦  As We Gather at Your Table
♦  I Have Loved You
♦  Blest Are They
♦  Saint Jude Hymn and Prayer

Whoever loves me will keep my word, says the Lord;
and my Father will love him, and we will come to him,

and make our home with him.
John 14:23

You can take a peek at the November liturgy page HERE.


Send an e-card. Make Apostle Cookies, pray the Litany to Saint Jude and learn about his life. Learn how one Judas (NOT Iscariot) became Saint Jude. Print a Saint Jude coloring page.

Sing the names of The Twelve Apostles. Russian choirs sing “O Ye Apostles from the Ends of the Earth.”

POPE FRANCIS: Become an Apostle

ADULTS: The Catholic Church Today
CHILDREN: Do you know the names of the Twelve Apostles?
YOUTH: Follow

Jesus sends us out, like the apostles, to share the Good News with the world, but how do you share the faith? Jesus calls us to follow him and we lift hearts and voices to accept his command.
