How well do you really know what is in the Bible? If you ever have been in a conversation with someone who knows the Bible well, you are often at a disadvantage. Our Baptismal Covenant encourages us to read and study Holy Scripture. Join us Thursdays for our Bible Studies: 10:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. The Bible Studies meet in classroom 6 (or the Chapel if it is too hot). No Biblical knowledge is required. We’ll even supply the Bible.

Childcare at the 10:15 a.m. service will begin Trinity Sunday and continue through Labor Day Weekend. The gathering is in Classroom 1.

Vacation Bible School will be held the week of July 10 – 14th.  Please complete your registration forms and volunteer forms and drop them off with Rhonda or give them to Wendy.

The old saying goes, “God doesn’t take a vacation from us, why should we take a vacation from God?” Don’t forget, we have three services on Sunday in order to help you meet your Christian obligation of “remembering the Sabbath day and keep it holy.” Worship times are at 8:00 a.m., 10:15 a.m., and 6:00 p.m. (Chapel). If you cannot make those times, join us for our weekly Healing Mass Wednesdays, 8:00 p.m., at our Mission Center: St. Michael and All Angels, 2197 Jackson Avenue, Seaford, NY.

Please remember that just as your bills continue in the summer so do the bills at St. Jude. Thanks in advance for ensuring your financial commitment to our parish continues through the entire year in order that we might provide vital ministries to our parishioners and our guests.
