St. Jude Parish is pleased to have Young at Heart, a group for anyone 55 or older.  This group makes up nearly a fourth of our parish and we want to offer opportunities in our community to be active, make new friends, and share our lives. We host monthly gatherings for lunch/games/speakers/planning/etc. and offering a day trip to somewhere fun and interesting.

This group is for you, so please let us know your thoughts and ideas. We are extremely excited to grow our ministry offerings and hope that you will join us as often as you can.

After a blizzard shuts down the roads on Christmas Eve eve, a motley crew of travelers find themselves stranded at the local community center. From the lovelorn drama teacher with a bus full of students, to the quarrelsome couple on the way to their wedding, to the overeager sheriff ready for some real criminal action, everyone has their own troubles to untangle. But to have a happy holiday, they're going to need a miracle--or seven, to be exact. “Closed for the Holidays” is a spirited and heartwarming comedy with a healthy dash of Christmas magic. Dinner at Dale’s Family Restaurant after the show

  • December 13th evening – Monthly meeting, Christmas Party, and Pitch In (no theme, just bring a favorite dish to share). A Group Activity is being planned – ideas most welcome (contact Pat or Betty).


We would like to notify all parishioners over 55 of our upcoming activities via email (in order to reduce costs). Please contact Pat Delph to update your email address.
