Fr. Bob Lombardo C.F.R. will be coming to St. Jude Parish October 21st to 23rd to give a parish mission focused on the treasures of our Catholic Faith. Talks will begin at 7:00pm on Sunday in the church and run until Tuesday evening.

Fr. Bob is a founding father of the Franciscans of the Renewal and is currently the Pastor at Our Lady of the Angels on the West Side of Chicago at West Humboldt Park, known for its extreme poverty and crime. He has also established a religious order in Chicago. The Franciscans of the Eucharist have helped in rebuilding the Church which was destroyed in the famous fire of 1958.  The mission at our Lady of the Angels currently feeds over 1000 families a month, while also running bible studies, retreats, summer camps for children, and clothing many of those who live in the community. Sister Alicia Torres who was the winner on the Food Network's show, "Chopped" will also present during the mission.
