BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
Chartered by St. Jude Catholic Church, Troop 40 is part of Boy Scouts of American and promises you the great outdoors. As a Scout, you can learn how to camp and hike without leaving a trace and how to take care of the land. You'll study wildlife up close and learn about nature all around you. There are plenty of skills for you to master, and you can teach others what you have learned. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness.

MEN OF ST. JUDE
Christian fellowship in a social atmosphere is what the Men of St. Jude are all about. From events like fantasy football league, dinner theatre date night, and our annual Cubs/Cardinals game, to the parish picnic, Easter egg hunt, and Daddy-Daughter Dance, the Men of St. Jude have a variety of fun events you won't want to miss.
WOMEN OF ST. JUDE
The Women of St. Jude seek to support, educate, and respond with Gospel values to the needs of the Church within the parish. Their goal is to provide an avenue of friendship for women through monthly meetings, social time, and service programs. This energetic group provides a spiritual environment for parishoners through prayer, reflection, and sacramental receptions. They host social events for the purpose of Fun-raising and/or Fund raising.
Any woman in our parish, 18 years and older, is a member of the Women of St. Jude and is invited to attend our meetings.
St. Jude Mom's Group
The St. Jude Mom’s Group works to support women in their vocation as Christian mothers through faith enrichment and fellowship opportunities that offer encouragement for daily living. Make each first Wednesday a monthly morning retreat – join us for daily mass at 8:30am and stay for the Mom’s Group speaker & discussion from 9:15 to 11:00am. The group meets in the Old Social Hall. These mornings are a chance for moms to come together for fellowship, faith enrichment, and fun. There is also optional childcare. Click below to get more information.
St. Jude serves our parishioners in high school by building up community while offering continuing formation for their spiritual lives. We meet regularly once a month usually on Sunday evenings. Our events have three pillars: fun, catechesis, and fellowship. We also have a larger summer event which we will serve the larger community of our faith and seek to meet other Catholics from around the country.
SENIORS AND RETIREES
Our seniors and retirees meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 11:30a.m. in the old Social Hall, except during summer months. Their gatherings consist of social activities and a brown bag lunch. All Seniors and Retirees are welcomed.
