Online giving is now available for St. Jude Parish. This system provides parishioners with the opportunity to give to special collections in addition to regular offerings. You may choose to do a One Time Gift or a special remembrance, or you can set up regularly scheduled contributions that are withdrawn on the date you specify in the system. Even if you typically use your offering envelopes, you may wish to contribute online to a particular collection. Go to our parish website at www.stjc.orgto sign up. Additional information is available by contacting Tracie Machalick at the Parish Center.

Many more parishioners are now taking advantage of the Building Bucks Gift Card program offered through the parish. They have come to realize that this is an easy way to financially assist the parish in its endeavor to build a much needed new church building. The program has been implemented to continue the legacy of St. Jude’s Parish on the mountain by helping to create the funds necessary to grow into the future. A significant amount of financial resources will be required to accomplish this goal. The St. Jude Gift Card program has been designed with convenience in mind. Hundreds of businesses are part of this program.
